I won the special prize at the Bodegas Paternina Short-story contest at La Rioja, Spain. Here is the video of my story being read during the ceremony: El encantador de letras
I have a couple of Micro-stories on this book: microRELATOS
And i have a story here: In-flight literary magazine
And another one on spanish at La Tundra magazine: La Tundra – Danza del venado
I’m a 20-something mexican girl currently living in Guadalajara.
And i swear i become a different person each time something as simple as the weather changes.
So you see, if i start i’d have to tell you about France-me and Brazil-me and Winter/Spring/Summer-me, and of course don’t forget about InLove-me that comes around every once in a while and screws everything up.
All the people i write about are real. The stories and the names might not be 100% accurate, but all these people came in to my life at one point and changed it.
Now most of them are gone from it, or too far away.
Which is why i write. To remember everyone. To keep them all in a place were i will always be able to find them and remember how i loved them, even after they are gone for good.
All stories are love stories. Has anyone famous said that yet? Someone should have…
