about val dering rojas


Perhaps this isn’t what you had in mind when I said naked– my nakedness is in what I write. Maybe transparency is closer to the truth. But you won’t find it easily– you have to really look.

Valley Girl on the outside fer sure, and while I’m still not sure if I am pleased with the fact that I am still here, I’m more than thrilled with the resurgence of  “Oh M’Gawd!” — I love the whole acronym twist too with OMG, thanks for that.

On the inside, I have also studied Addiction and Recovery Counseling and Psychology. You can skip down a bit here if you want, because I’m going to brag:  I’ve also been a multiple Pushcart nominee, and Best of the Net nominee, but then again, who hasn’t? I am the author of the chapbooks TEN (Dancing Girl Press, 2014) and Waspfish, a semi-finalist for the Glass Lyre Press 2016 Kithara Prize. (Glass Lyre Press, 2016), and hope to write more…

When I’m not writing, I’m usually obsessing over Austria or Amsterdam, aliens or angels, or my Dutch vs German language apps, although Spanish  really should be my concentration. Coffee is my sustenance, cigarettes, my vice. Alright. I quit smoking, but I still like the way that sounds. Honestly, it was the last vice I had left.
