This groundbreaking anthology includes works by Francisco X. Alarcón, Gustavo Arellano, Lalo Alcaraz, Luis Alberto Urrea, Rodolfo Acuña as well as works from many new voices culled from the woodsheds of Neo Aztlán. ¡Ban This! The BSP Anthology of Xican@ Literature is a weapon of mass education. These are our stories and they deserve to be heard. This book is a tightly-packed tome of literary rebellion just waiting to be unleashed.

I have one short story called LORCA GREEN in the upcoming new anthology by Broken Sword Publications, LOWRITING, featuring the photography of my good friend Art Meza.

I wrote about what inspires my writing over at Nuestras Voces.

Epicurious wrote about my food writing and sent people to learn all about tamales on my narrative food blog, Doña Lupe’s Kitchen.
