I write. Books. Articles. Analyses. It's a thing.

Born in Matanzas, Cuba. Emigrated to U.S. at age almost three. Too long ago to remember, but after Castro took power--a transplanted Cuban by way of Texas and now Virginia. Go figure.

I've always written. Always read. Always been obsessed with books: Mysteries, Fantasy, SF, you name it. About the only genre that doesn't flip my switch is "literary novels" - you know, the kind they make you read in school and have little to no plot and/or characterization.

That said, I can probably find a few I like.

I love well-written genre fiction, whether fan fiction or pro. My own work also encompasses both those worlds. I write fan fiction (less now that I have deadlines) and am a professionally published writer.
