Thank you for visiting my Selected Works page, where you will find the stories, essays, and books I have published since the Fall of 2000, the year I started at UTEP as an Assistant Professor of Creative Writing. I have also included readings and lectures I have done since my tenure at this university. I am mainly a writer of fiction and creative non-fiction. I give lectures on Chicano/a literature and art, Borges, Kafka, and the “Craft of Writing.” I am also currently teaching courses and writing about mysticism and physics as metaphors for artistic creation. Please feel free to contact me at 915-747-6255.
