Brown Paper began a repository for my publications (mostly book reviews). I then started blogging about books, bookish matters, and occasionally writing about other issues that interested me. I focus on feminist and multicultural writing, especially immigrant fiction. I do not review poetry, prescriptive non-fiction, chick lit, erotica, thrillers or inspirational /religious work. As of 2018, I’ve begun focussing more on Young Adult and Middle Grade writing, again with an eye on diversity.
