I am a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural author of books for and about children. I was born and raised in Mexico city, with ancestry spanning back to Ireland, Spain, and the indigenous people of Mexico. I have also put down new roots in many countries I now call home and whose cultural character shapes my identity, including France, Japan, Germany, and the United States. Not surprisingly, I love exploring themes of identify and diversity in my storytelling. Long philosophical conversations are a favorite pass-time.
I currently live in the Chicagoland area with my husband, three kids, and two very lazy cats.
