On a beautiful island morning a couple of years ago, my good friend A. and I shared breakfast as we tried to come up with a name for this character I had created. Gus, my friend suggested, and we christened the little guy with the last drop of Irish coffee. I thought of him then as a little satyr, but he is in fact a shy and gentle soul, a faun, and not at all "satyrical." Things usually don't go that well for him, and yet he keeps at it. Le petit faune.
A little about myself:
Hello there and thank you for visiting my website! I have lived in Spain, Mexico, France and the United States, but now make my home in Germany. I have a Ph.D. in Literary Studies and a Master's in TESOL, and have published several books for children, among them El Loro Tico Tango and El Fandango de Lola, a 2012 Ezra Jack Keats Honor Book. As a writer and an artist I'm in constant conversation with my own anxious mind even as I celebrate the joyful possibilities of our crazy, incomprehensible world.
