About Me

I'm the author of My Daughter’s Eyes and Other Stories (2007), winner of the Curbstone Press Marmol Prize for First Latina Fiction. My most recent fiction is anthologized in Viajeros del Rocio: 25 Narradores Dominicanos de la Diaspora and Riverine: An Anthology of Hudson Valley Writers.I am also the Director of the Lehman College Counseling Center where I provide mental health services to college students.

Why do you write?

Life fuels my creativity. Impermanence. Language. I love words. Why I write? I am most present when I write. Writing is a healing process that brings me great joy.

Any favorite authors? Books?

No preference really. If it is authentic and true and coming from a deep source, if it breaks barriers, creates something new, if it brings insight, then, I like that. Words have power.

Corey: Thanks for nudging me and making me come back to this amazing, virtual literary space. I love it. The power of your prose resonates with me. My name, a city in the south of France. Dominicans love unique names. Keep writing. I posted some of my work. To be continued.
