I wrote poetry as long as I remember. It was only when I attended Howard University and met Naomi Ayala that I took it seriously. Thanks to her encouragement and editorial reviews, I got my first poems published.

Forthcoming Novel: Tierras de Arena Negra (Lands of Black Sand)
For the first time in years, I'm writing in Spanish. This book originated in a Taller Literario with Mayra Santos Febres in Puerto Rico. The book is about the story of a woman of Canary Island descent who is looking for her roots. She is somehow connected to an indigenous African Guanche woman in the Canary Islands who lived during the conquest and enslavement of her people.
