MalasMarcela Fuentes, assistant professor of creative writing, is making waves with her debut novel and has recently been featured in Texas Monthly and on Good Morning America 

Malas takes place in a fictional town in Texas near the Mexico border and chronicles the families of two proud women through the decades.

The national television show featured an interview with her this month when her book was chosen for their book club pick for June.
