BetweenHereAndGone_coverLARGEHi there!

Just to get you started, here’s a little FYI on what you’ll find find around these parts. There’s the obligatory About me page and of course, if you’re here for the books, you’ll get information on When the Stars Go Blue (St. Martin’s Griffin/2010), winner of BEST YOUNG ADULT NOVEL: 2011 INTERNATIONAL LATINO BOOK AWARDS, as well as info on my previous novels, Adiós to My Old Life,  It’s Not About the Accent, and Both Sides Now. Also, there’s Between Here and Gone, the story to which Publisher’s Weekly gave a starred review as well as naming it one of its Best Books of 2016, calling it a, “lush portrayal of a joyful, painful, complicated life.”

I can also be found on Facebook, and Instagram as the more up-to-date ways with which to keep up with me.
