Wait, did I read your bio wrong? I just saw that you are in San Marcos, TX, not at Columbia. Either way -- welcome. :) (I grew up in San Antonio.)

Dear Nelly,
It's really wonderful to have you here, I just did some reading about you and your work (got to you through Angie Cruz's page) and wanted to say, among other things, that I got my MFA at Columbia too -- how are things there? Hope you find this a supportive, productive place to be. We'll be doing some reorganization of the main page next week that should help make that much more true, so stay tuned.
Warm best,
Kamy

Welcome to She Writes, Nelly. I love your name so much that I used it as the protagonist's name in my first novel. :-) I'll look forward to connecting with you here. Enjoy!
