Mexican writer, poet, and storyteller, and Assistant Professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at the University of Texas–Pan American, where she teaches Creative Writing and Spanish Literature.
Her first book, published in 1989, Por recuerdos viejos, por esos recuerdos (For Memories of Old, for Those Memories) was nominated for the José Fuentes Mares Prize for Literature.
Her second book, De cruz y media luna, 1996 is a poetry collection approaching love as a theme through the lens of transculturation: the Christian world and the Muslim world; the Hispanic world and the Persian world.
Her third book, Y comerás del pan sentado junto al fuego (And You Shall Eat from the Bread While Seated by the Fire), 2002, is one of the most significant within her literary works. The poems in this collection revisit the theme of love, although, this time, it appears to be within a semi-biblical context.
Her fourth book, Miércoles de ceniza (Ash Wednesday), 2007, is a long poem of 622 verses, a profound lament which gives way to pain.
