about this contributor:


TONY ROBLES: I am from San Francisco, Ca. Been writing several years now. My children's book "Lakas and the Manilatown Fish" will be released in April 2003--the story of my son and a crazy fish who talks, runs, flies and does other crazy things. Everything i learned about being a poet, i learned from my time spent working for the Filipino Building Maintanence Company as a janitor with my father. Also published in "Interlope" and "Seven Card Stud with Seven Manangs Wild"--An anthology of writings by Pilipino Americans in the Bay Area.
