René Saldaña teaches English and writing at the university level in south Texas. He is the author of "The Jumping Tree" (2001) and "Finding Our Way: Stories" (Random House/Wendy Lamb Books, 2003). More recently, several of his stories have appeared in anthologies such as "Face Relations," "Guys Write for GUYS READ," "Every Man for Himself," and "Make Me Over," and in magazines such as "Boy's Life" and "READ." Humanities Texas awarded Saldaña a grant to help promote the use of culturally relevant literature in the south Texas middle schools.
