On the one hand, family can be ultra-irritating; on the other, sometimes they’re the only ones that have your back. In Toni Margarita Plummer’s story, Attack of Las Quetas, family is there for the main character for better AND for worse. You’ll never look at a crochet hook the same way again.
Toni Margarita Plummer was born and raised in the San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles, the daughter of a Mexican immigrant mother and white father. She is the author of the story collection The Bolero of Andi Rowe and winner of Somos En Escrito’s 2021 Extra Fiction Contest.
