Editorial Reviews


Arizona Daily Star, June 3, 2018
            After one particularly vicious fight between a Barrio Anita mother and her pregnant 15-year old daughter, the mother - having made her share of costly mistakes - collapses with love and regret. Did the daughter remember the story her grandmother used to tell? That the moon is a big tortilla? It rises in the sky to feed God. Each night, God nibbles away at it. When he consumes it all, the earth sends him a fresh one.
            So go the stories in this collection. In its "Tales of Love," regrettable behaviors too often are cyclical, and young women (and a couple of men) get consumed and replaced by fresh ones.
            Former Tucson High teacher, Gayle Jandrey, writes that she drew from experiences ofher students and friends to create this Spanglish-speaking, Southern Arizona community. Its lives are hardly easy - love is irresistible, but it's rife with disappointments, abuses, betrayals and consequence.
            Jandrey shows a clear affection for her population in "Tortilla Moon." The stories showcase a sensitive ear for language, clear eye for detail, and a deft hand rendering culture and narrative.

From the Author

Although I write under the name G. Davies Jandrey, friends call me Gayle. I'm a retired educator, a poet and a writer of fiction. For five seasons I worked as a fire lookout in the Saguaro National Park and Chiricahua National Monument of southern Arizona. It was in these "sky islands" that I first learned to love the richness and diversity of southern Arizona that informs much of my poetry and prose. 
My short fiction has appeared in Calyx, Bilingual Review, Portland Review, The Berkeley Fiction Review and others. My debut novel, A Garden of Aloes, was published by The Permanent Press in 2008. Fireship Press published  Journey through an Arid Land in 2014, A Small Saving Grace in 2016 and my latest novel, Deep Breathing, in the fall of 2018.  My collection of closely linked short stories, Tortilla Moon and Other Tales of Love, was published by Cascabel Press in the spring of 2018.  Currently, I'm writing a new suspense novel whose working title is The Eighth Mortal Sin. 
I make my home with my husband, Fritz, Tito the dog and Goldie the cat in the desert outskirts of Tucson, Arizona. Time spent coaching three lively third graders under the auspices of Literacy Connect's Reading Seed Program brings me great joy as does volunteering at Sister José Women's Center. I am a passionate, but not particularly gifted, gardener and Canasta player.
