I was born 1971 in New York City, near the U.S. Coast Guard base where my father was stationed. I grew up in Salinas, California, and I attended both undergraduate and graduate schools at the University of California, Berkeley. I have lived in Midwestern college towns for most of my adult life. My academic articles have been published in positions: asia critique, Positively No Filipinos Allowed: Building Communities and Discourse (Temple University Press, 2006), and MELUS. Through Tulitos Press, I have collaborated with Jean Vengua to publish the screenplay books of The Debut (2000) and The Flip Side (2001). While teaching writing, multiracial U.S. literature, and Asian American literature, film, and popular culture at DePaul University, I was on the board of the Chicago Filipino American Network (FAN). More recently, my chicken adobo entry won both the professional chefs' panel and the peoples' choice awards at the 2011 Chicago FAN Adobofest. I live in Bloomington, Indiana with my husband, Fabio Rojas, and our two children.
