ABOUT LUPE RUIZ-FLORES

  • I am the author of six bilingual picture story books published by Arte Público Press. 
    Previously I worked as an aerospace engineering technician. In my heart, however, I was always a writer. It wasn’t until I won in a national magazine writing contest that I took a leap of faith into the world of writing. 

    I am currently working on a middle-grade novel as well as other picture books.
    A native Texan, I have also lived in Thailand and Japan. Visit my Web site at www.luperuiz-flores.com and my blog at www.luperuiz-flores.blogspot.com. My email: lrflores@luperuiz-flores.com.

     

     

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • My goal is to continue with picture books but also to get published in the middle grade and YA genres. Good news: My two latest bilingual picture books are - Lupita’s First Dance/El Primer Baile de Lupita illustrated by Gabhor Utomo and Let’s Salsa/Bailemos Salsa illustrated by Robert Casilla.
