I’m a proud, Pocha Princess–a fifth-generation, Indigenous southern Colorado native with a limited Spanish vocabulary. I’m a Méjicana/Chicana born and bred.
I moved with my husband and two-year-old son to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of northern California 28 years ago. My second son was born a year later. I raised my boys and worked in the film industry for ten years as a property manager, assistant director, and production coordinator until I wrote my debut novel, River of Love.
