Francisco X. Stork - Author

Francisco X. Stork was born in Monterrey, Mexico in 1953, but moved to El Paso, Texas with his adoptive father when he was nine. He attended Harvard University where he studied Latin American Literature for four years before changing courses and attending Columbia Law School. He makes his living as a lawyer working for a state agency in charge of developing affordable housing. He writes novels, working on them every day in the early morning before work and in the evenings. Novel writing is not a hobby for him. It is a duty and joy all wrapped up in one. His hope is that people, especially young people, will see in his Mexican American characters the hopes, fears, nobility, faults and limitations inherent in all people.
