The more diverse it is, the better as you can see by the following list of publications I have authored and co-authored:

Publications:

Also, I have collaborated with Universidad Iberoamericana during the Binational Encounters of Schools of Communications. I am the editor of the book La pluma y el lacipero. Cronicas de Periodismo Cultural, published by the Tijuana Cultural Center and the Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes. I am also the co-author of the book La voz a ti debida, a collection of interviews with twelve of Mexico's top fiction writers. Plaza & Valdez in conjunction with UABC (Baja California Autonomous...
