I am the author of a memoir, Marked for Life (Harmony), the non-fiction title Infusions of Healing (Fireside), and with Esmeralda Santiago, the editor of two story anthologies, Las Mamis and Las Christmas (both published by Vintage/ Knopf). In my career as a journalist, I was the founder and editor of two award-wining magazines — L.A. Style and Sí — and a co-founder of the L.A. Weekly newspaper. For the past fifteen years, I have lived and worked in Rome, Italy, where I work as a writing coach teacher and editor. My projects included proposal writing, ghost writing, and editing. I mentor writers' groups and work with clients individually worldwide via Skype.
