About the Author
I was born in Mexico and lived there until I was 15. I
attended a Catholic school there for nine years until
I moved to Los Angeles in 1969 and entered high school.
In 1972, I entered a community college. I worked part-time
while at school. In 1976 I was awarded a scholarship from
a private college. I got my BA degree in 1979. I have
worked in teaching, in translation and in real estate.
Presently, I dedicate a great portion of my time to writing.
