Cisneros Cafe is a gathering place where we find the soul grace to redefine our creative center by way of faith, social justice, and books. My hope is that these words make you a better version of who you already are.

I hope you leave inspired. I pray you always come back ready for another cup.

I am a San Antonio, Texas native and mom to Faith, Ryan, and Brooklyn. I spend my life having soul-filled conversations with my Hip Hop nerd of a husband, Erasmo. We love to gather with a diverse group of friends, open our table up for grubbin’, and road-trip to the far reaches of the earth together.

Christianity challenges me because life is messy and I have questions. The work here comes from that place of faith where I recognize my Latinidad and mistfitness. I am an advocate of religious freedom and marginalized people.

My work has appeared in The Acentos Review, Rock & Sling (forthcoming), Mudroom, The Lookout Magazine, Creative and Free, Zouch Magazine, Amity Coalition, Sagebrush Review, and more. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Thank you for allowing me into your life this way.

Amor y Abrazos,
