I’m Erendira

AboutI'm a Christian Who Writes

I have a special interest in reading, writing, faith, & art and how these affect our curiosities as creatives. I would describe my writing as contemporary with a Christian worldview, with a sensibility to identity in all its facets: faith, second-generation immigrant, language, motherhood, trauma, silence, and transformation.

 

My name is pronounced: EH- R- EH- Y- N- D- IH- R- AH.
