My novel, INK, was published by Crossed Genres Publications in 2012. It was named to Latinidad's Best Books of 2012 list. It is available for sale on Amazon, Barnes and Noble online, Smashwords and others online booksellers.
I'm something of a social media enthusiast, at both work and play, and habitually haunt the Latinos in Social Media twitter party (#latism) and Muckrack Chat (#muckedup).
