All forms of interpreting are inherently social; they involve relationships among at least three people and two languages.

The historical novel, Cortes Cenquizqui, set in sixteenth century Mexico and Spain, follows the conflicted lives and minds of several characters through an age of freshly crossing culture, language, and power.

Yet she acknowledges that she is ill-equipped to leave Mexico City to live in the outlying Indigenous villages.
