Miguel Antony Briones
is an award-winning educator, anti-racist community organizer, public speaker, and self published author of the bilingual children's book Como Mi Padrino. He was born and raised in Central El Paso Texas. Once a young travieso, he now writes about the experiences and culture that shaped his perception and outlook on life. He currently lives in the excessively overpriced city of Austin Texas, with his wife and their perra chiflada Doña Benson Kenobi (aka La BK de Tejas).
When he is not writing or illustrating, Miguel enjoys composing music, practicing curanderismo, volunteering with local and national organizations, and writing about himself in the third person.
His hope is to inspire and empower future generations through his writing by uplifting the experiences and issues that impact marginalized and vulnerable communities.
