About Me


  • Let's go with the obvious first: without me, it's just aweso.
  • I have a very dark, twisted sense of humor, so everything "sad" that I write is intended to be funny in a morbid, gallows-humor way.
  • My favorite authors are:
    • Chuck Palahniuk
    • H.P. Lovecraft
    • Irvine Welsh
    • J.R.R. Tolkien
    • C.S. Lewis
    • H.G. Wells
    • Ursula K. Le Guin
    • Fyodor Dostoyevsky
  • I try to involve some type of symbolism in my writing. I think it is important to be able, as a reader, to look deeper into a story and identify universal truths and questions about the human condition.
  • My college and graduate education included majors in chemistry, Ethnic Studies, and library science. I like to classify and analyze things. I enjoy mathematics and chemistry, but not physics or biology. My favorite type of chemistry is inorganic.
  • I am Hispanic, and I was raised Catholic, but I'm an atheist now. I am a feminist, and I identify as a Chicana. I am straight, and I strongly support same-sex marriage and equal rights for LGBTQ people.
  • I live life on the edge. I prefer to push the boundaries of what my body is capable of doing. I make many, many mistakes that way, but the pain is worth the exhilaration of seeing my feet cross the finish line of a marathon or reaching the top of a mountain. That's why I generally write characters who are physically active and enjoy the element of danger in exercise.
  • Lastly: I have a big mouth, which gets me in significant amounts of trouble.
