Fernandez was born in Denver, raised in Boston and Metro-California and
now lives and works in Midtown Sacramento. He writes for Spin.com,
Boulder Weekly, San Antonio Current and the Sacramento News & Review.
Among other assignments, he has worked the crime beat for several area
newspapers. His poetry is widely published and he continues to be a
sought after reader and speaker – often asked to talk about ethnic
diversity, abuse and addiction, and his background as a writer and poet.
In recovery, Fernandez deals with his own demons.
