Francisco X Stork


Mexico

Francisco X. Stork was born in Monterrey, Mexico, and moved to the United States when he was nine. He studied Latin American literature at Harvard before completing a law degree at Columbia University. Publishers Weekly praised his first novel, THE WAY OF THE JAGUAR, as a "splendidly intense debut." His second book, BEHIND THE EYES, was selected as both a Commended title for the Americas Award and a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age.

Francisco works as an attorney for an affordable-housing agency in Massachusetts. He lives near Boston with his wife.
