Speaker Email:


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 for more information on school visits, etc.  My email:
