Gus Sanchez has worked as a busboy, a waiter, a public interest advocate (if only for one day), the worst ceiling tile sales rep ever, a corporate paralegal, a building maintenance supervisor, a tech support drone, and most recently, an Information Technology project manager. A native New Yorker, Gus now lives with his wife Jaime and daughter Sophia in Charlotte, North Carolina, where despite having lived here for more than twelve years, still doesn’t care much for barbeque, sweet tea, or NASCAR, and has only uttered the word “y’all” on the rarest of occasions.
His short stories have appeared in several print and online anthologies. He is currently working on his first novel, which he hopes to complete…eventually.
