Welcome! I’m Luis and officially, I’m an “award-winning” and “best-selling” author. I’ve written a bunch of books, stories & poems and I’ll write a bunch more. I hope you like them. Read my official bio, download a press kit & see some family pictures.
Oh, and you pronounce it: oo-RAY-uh.
Book club members have been some of my most enthusiastic and careful readers. I’m thrilled to share my work with you, answer your questions and tell you some of the stories behind the stories. This is our spot, just for us. Here, we can chat: If I’m nearby, I’ll come and visit your club. Otherwise, we can Skype, talk over the phone or email. Sometimes, I’ll send surprises or hold contests.
San Leadro is reading Into the Beautiful North and we'll talk about it. More information here.
