ABOUT LUPE RUIZ-FLORES
I am the author of six bilingual picture story books published by Arte Público Press. I’ve also had poetry published in anthologies, the latest in the book, THANKU: Poems of Gratitude, for children published by Millbrook publishers. My writing career started when I won in a national magazine writing contest. That is when I took a leap of faith into the world of writing.
I am available for school visits, presentations, and writing workshops. I am bilingual (English and Spanish). A native Texan, I have also lived in Thailand and Japan. Visit my Web site at www.luperuiz-flores.com for more information on school visits, etc. My email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
My goal is to continue with picture books but also to get published in the middle grade and YA genres. I am currently working on a novel in verse: Soledad Strikes Back. It is historical fiction set in Texas in the late 1930s during a pecan sheller strike.
