My name is María Isabel, I'm a dedicated creative writer of fiction, a lover of independent movies, a furniture-refurbishing wannabe, a peanut-butter & chocolate fanatic, a New York City obsessor, a lover of Jhumpa Lahiri, Junot Díaz, Vladimir Nabokov, Gabriel Garcia-Marquez..., a devout Christ-believer, a collector of piggy banks, an older sister, a 90s music listener, a Tarantino-quoter, a moderately liberal voter, a confident makeup seller, a Hello Kitty/Totoro hoarder, a Nissan Altima owner, and finally, an aspiring, university academician with hopes of one day becoming a tenured professor.
I write for the creative catharsis.
