Better known as a political essayist than as a fiction writer, I have nevertheless published in Spanish several short story collections and a few novellas and novels.

My author page and books at Amazon

From 1999 on, I traveled frequently to Richmond, Virginia and New York. In 2006, I started writing short stories in English, after writing in Spanish a collection of short stories and one novel based on my bicultural experience (La vida Americana and La voz de Mercedes, published at Amazon E-Books.) In 2010, I completed a collection of short stories in English, The Map of Solitude. now published as e-book at Amazon.Most of its stories have been workshopped at Zoetrope, where many wonderful and generous writers have helped me to grow in a language I am still trying to make my own. In 2011, I wrote my first novel in English, The French Lesson also published as e-book at Amazon.
