She has taken part in creative writing workshops with Antonio Villanova, Román Luján, Luis Alberto Arrellano, and Eduardo Antonio Parra, and in 2014 received a Young Creators’ grant from the Queretano Institute for Culture and the Arts. Her first manuscript, A Possible Place, attempts to raise a number of questions in relation to identity and the deeply politicized environment of her country of birth. The novel also explores alternative narrative forms, incorporating a variety of voices and viewpoints. She is presently working on a second novel, El Mundo Ilusionado (The World of Illusion), a satire with a female protagonist, set between Mexico City and Paris in the 1930s.
