More About the Author
A few things about me:
I am a Philadelphia-born writer living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico since 1992. I write about raising a bicultural family in One Big Happy Family: 18 Writers Talk about Polyamory, Househusbandry, Mixed Marriage, Open Adoption and Other Realities of Truly Modern Love,edited by Rebecca Walker (Riverhead Books, 2009).
Selections from Flirting in Spanish, my memoir listed here on Amazon, are included in Mexico: A Love Story (Seal Press, 2006); Not What I Expected, The Unpredictable Road from Womanhood to Motherhood (Paycock Press, 2007), Sport Literate (2009), salonmagazine.com (1999).
My personal essays and fiction appear in Solamente en San Miguel II (2010), The Huffington Post(2010), SOL literary Magazine (2010), The Hawk Will Never Die, Tales from St. Joseph´s Hardwood (Sports Publishing, 2005), Philadelphia Stories (2006), and The San Miguel Writer(1994). My essay on bicultural living was broadcast on National Public Radio in 2000. I have written for various regional magazines and newspapers.
I am proud to be the producer/instructor of the Teen Writers Workshop, a free creative writing workshop for San Miguel teens. It is part of the San Miguel Writers Conference held in February each year. sanmiguelwritersconference.org
While I can pronounce many complicated words in Spanish, I have yet to master the art of flipping the top off a Corona bottle with the seat belt buckle, a skill at which my Mexican husband is adept.
