Introducing Carina Faz

April 27, 2022

It’s always exciting when someone new joins the team and we could not be more pleased to introduce our newest member and the third of three new fiction editors, Carina Faz, who joins us as of issue #7.  

Carina is an award-winning screenwriter/filmmaker residing in Brooklyn (NY), but originally from Dallas, Texas. She received her BA in Radio/Television Production from Texas A&M University at Commerce and is currently finishing her MFA in Fiction at the University of Nebraska Omaha. 

When Carina agreed to be an editor we asked her some of the same questions we’ve asked our contributing authors over the past few months. She shared this about what fuels her desire to write…

“Sharing aspects of my culture is one of the main reasons I write. Growing up, there weren’t too many films or works of literature with Mexican American characters. If I can create a story someone can enjoy and relate to, or help someone understand and appreciate my culture more than they did before, that is all I can ask for.”

Carina spends her time traveling back and forth between the Lone Star State and the Big Apple. When not working to pay the bills, Carina enjoys watching films directed by Robert Rodriguez, baking fresh Mexican pastries, and buying just one more book. If you let her pick what’s for dinner, it will always be tacos!

We second that decision. Welcome to the Good Life Carina! We’re delighted to be working with you!! 

Cheers,
~The Good Life Review Team
