Think about this post as a four year and a half ellipsis.

Many things happened. Huge things. Mostly nice things*.

Thanks to the Carl Brandon Society, I attended Clarion West on 2019 and it changed my life because I found a loving family, and I got to be part of an amazing community.

I'm writing again. I'm sending stuff out to magazines. I got into dream markets (as you can see on my bibliography list). I moved to another country–again. I founded an award for Mexican speculative fiction. I'm trying to do good by helping Clarion West as much as I can. I'm grateful for having the privilege of telling you about all of this.
