I am a writer, translator, and storyteller who is now based in Chicago after many years in Lima, Bern, New York, Washington D.C., Buenos Aires, Montreal, and other places that have slipped my mind. I hold a BA in Hispanic Studies from McGill University and an M.Phil. in Latin American and Iberian Cultures from Columbia University.
I am currently working on contemporary YA novel that combines my passionate views on gender issues with my geeky love of musicals. I am the winner of SCBWI’s Prairie Writer’s and Illustrator’s Day Manuscript Contest in 2015 and have also received a Letter of Merit from the organization.
I’m also an active member of the Chicago’s thriving Live Lit community. I co-produce the monthly Live Lit show, Is This a Thing? and have read at The Marrow, Story Club, the kates, and other events around town.
