I always have my fingers dipped in so many paint pots at the same time, so here are just a few of the things I am working on:
I am putting the finishing touches on a short story collection, The Rock Eaters. It’s what someone has compared to a “magical mystery tour.” Here are a few of the stories: A group of radioactive truck drivers storm the US border. A couple takes a cruise to the Caribbean only to find that not everything is what it seems. Travelers get stuck in a traffic jam that lasts a thousand years. A couple trying to save their asphyxiating baby stops time and raises her in the ambulance. Ghosts surround two girls playing a true love game in their basement. An island is invaded by green plastic soldiers. Aliens crash land on our planet, and a kite maker tries to understand her fear and her guilt at what the humans do in response. And more!
I am working on a novel set during the 1965 Guerra de Abril in the Dominican Republic. On the day the Americans invade to overturn the tide of the war, a little girl is granted the power to see all possible futures. She has to come to terms with quantum physics and Schrödinger’s cat in a race to save her mother, a constitutionalist guerrillera fighting in the Cuidad Nueva.
