The Tata Nacho baffled and entertained us in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. We didn’t know what it was. Mitch wondered if it was a cheesy, crunchy, breast shaped snack! I wondered if it was too strange of a name to use for a press. After hearing about the need for more venues for writers, we decided to start a venue, start small, but grow. We would like to publish an anthology of Tata Nacho and want to create a yearly rag, or a non specific interval.
Tata Nacho is now at www. tatanachopress.com
I grew up in East Los Angeles and now reside in Winters, California with chickens, dogs, kids and a garden. A veteran of two marriages, I have lived with a magician, fire-eater, midget, and have castrated sheep with my teeth.
My poetry can be found at Exquisite Corpse, Yawp, New Virginia Review and other publications. I co-edited two anthologies, “Mourning Sickness” a collection about miscarriage and infant death, and “Bombshells: War Stories and Poems by Women on the Homefront,” a collection of homefront tales spanning WWII to the present. I am a graduate of UC Irvine, and MFA graduate of UNO.
