I try to see the world for what it is, which is why I find literature so fascinating: You see the world projected in wild, imaginative ways which you would never see in real life. I've always wanted to craft stories like the great authors and philosophers that have accompanied us throughout histories, so I'm working hard to live the dream.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Monterrey, but spent a couple of years in Phoenix, where I had to breach the language barrier between me and my colleagues. Of course, I was four, but I managed to learn English in a couple of months and a huge part of that was reading books. Here's where my love for literature began to develop, and where I decided that someday I would be an author.
When did you first start writing?
During junior high we had a writing workshop and the teacher told me that what I was writing was beautiful. I didn't believe her because I thought she meant my handwriting, which is pretty difficult to read, but once I figured she meant the stories, I kept doing it for pleasure and then showed my work to my friends, and eventually strangers.
