Fiction, poetry and opera are center stage for me in 2015, with work moving forward in all realms.  A lot to celebrate so far, including the talented group of writers from around the world who attended Under the Volcano’s 12th season of master classes in Tepoztlan, where my wonderful colleagues were Owen Sheers,  Jonathan Levi, Jennifer ClementAlison Wearing and our featured guest writer, Francisco Goldman. 

Central projects:  I’m am finishing my novel Marose and creating a Spanish-language opera based on the Mexican Day of the Dead.


It was an honor to be interviewed about the role of memory in my work earlier this year by Raúl Silva, the thoughtful host of El Arte de la Memoria. His team did an amazing job of integrating all the strands of my writing–with beautiful music! Click here to listen to the podcast.
