Her fiction and poetry have appeared in "Latinos in Lotusland: An Anthology of Contemporary Southern California Literature." She received a Pushcart Prize Special Mention and was selected a Reading Notable for The Best American Non-Required Reading. Her debut short-story collection, "Chola Salvation," was published last spring.
