Along with having taught in higher education for more than thirty-five years, I have also pursued a career as a creative writer, focusing on lyric fiction more specifically.
“Cinco Nébulas de Obsesión” is a collection of five short stories taking place in both Peru and the United States and published a few years ago. My first novel, “Lazarillo en Londres” will see publication sometime this year, followed by “Nébula Cumplida.” I am currently working on a few projects on themes related to reincarnation, death and love, seen from the point of view of a woman.
