About the Writer

I’ve always believed that stories are not about the main character but about the writer. You’ll learn more about me through my stories, but, for this post, I’ll go through the basics.

I hate my first name, so I go by my middle name, Evan. I’m one of the few Puerto Ricans born and raised in San Diego, California. I have always been an artist, drawing through every lecture in class and at any moment I could. In my early twenties, I broke my finger playing dodgeball, don’t ask. That’s when my writing began. Taking some creative writing classes led me towards an English degree. Then, because the economy tanked, I got my MFA at San Diego State University. But shortly after I stopped writing.

Years later, I’m writing again. I’m ready to share my stories. I’ll be posting blogs, short stories, creative non-fiction, and excepts from my manuscript.

  1. Nice to meet you! And good for you for writing again! If you are looking for daily writing challenges, there are plenty on WP! You may be interested in the A to Z Challenge in April. I posted about it today. Cheers!

  2. I couldn’t agree with you more. A piece of myself is in everything I write from a snippet of poetry to full novels in a series. The beauty, however, is that you do not lose that part of self, but each written piece adds to the whole of self. Each character I birth and allow to grow, evolve, think, and watch as I reign them in when they try to take over my story, brings a new, deeper version of personal consciouness. Thank you for reminding me of this.
