• I am the RA for SCBWI Brazos Valley. Additionally, I co-run Kidlit Latinx, a Facebook support group for aspiring Latinx children’s book authors and illustrators, and am a contributor to the Latinx in Kidlit website.

    I am a Paraguayan-American travel and kid lit author with a love for stories about culture and communication. My childhood was spent moving from country to country with the Foreign Service, visiting Paraguay whenever possible. I hold a B.A. in Media Studies and worked in PR and advertising before turning to writing. My travel guidebook, OTHER PLACES TRAVEL GUIDE TO PARAGUAY, was published by Other Places Publishing in 2012, updated in 2017 and lead to work with “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” The Guardian and KCRW’s “Good Food.”
