Biography

Born and raised in East Los Angeles, I have always loved reading and writing. My goal in life is for people to read what I'm writing and then double up laughing, dislocating something. But modest giggles are OK, too.

This is an assortment of short stories—like a box of Amedei Porcelana chocolates—about people like your vecinos and unnamed relatives. Everyone is trying to find romance while groping through the fog they and others create. Okay, two are about just groping through life, in general. They, hopefully, will make you smile, giggle, sniggle and belt out a laugh con ganas. I also accept tee-hee's.

This is a collection of short stories I wrote based on lives and events of my gente in and around East Los Angeles.

A Chicano romantic-comedic-drama. Of sorts. Two combustible sisters take generous swipes at each other’s cabeza; one young man seeking love, displays his plumage while a young woman yawns; a son wants to be somebody, anybody; and one Grand Méjicana is a stellar cook, animal importer (when the sun goes down), and cultural cop. All engage in a fierce hunt for hidden wealth in one casa.
