"Madaling araw"
My flash fiction story, "Madaling Araw," has been published in Issue 2 of Lakas ,
a zine "dedicated to uplifting the stories and deepening the discourse and analysis
​of Filipina women in the U.S." 


        My flash fiction story, " Ruby ," has been published online at the wonderful
        SmokeLong Quarterly. There's a companion piece that was fun to do, too: 
        " Smoke & Mirrors: An Interview with Veronica Montes ."
