Christopher Rodarte lives in Tucson, Ariz., with his wife of about a quarter of a century and his Scottish terriers Matthew the Black, Philip the White, and Mary Queen of Scots. Yoshe is theirWoodle (Westie/Poodle), and she is the lady boss of House Rodarte. Sue is their cat, and they also foster a few Sonoran Desert tortoises, all of whom are likely to outlive us all. Rodarte is a member of the Desert Aquarist Society; ergo, he has more fish and fish tanks than he probably should.
Mr. Rodarte, Christopher Rodarte's more respectable doppelganger, is proud to teach at Sam Hughes Elementary.
Special thanks and acknowledgments to local bookstores Antigone Books, Mostly Books, Bookmans, The Arizona Inn and Clues, Unlimited for their support, as they all carry "La Llorona: Ghost Stories of the Southwest," his collection of stories based on encounters that people have had with La Llorona.
