Ari Tison is a Bribri (Indigenous Costa Rican) American and African-descended poet and the author of the forthcoming YA hybrid poetry and prose novel Saints of the Household (2023). She is also a contributor to the YA cross-genre monster anthology Our Shadows Have Claws: 15 Latin American Monster Stories (Algonquin Young Readers). From zombies and cannibals to death incarnate, Our Shadows Have Claws offers something for every monster lover. A quick-witted slayer hunts bloodthirsty vampires; “el viejo de la bolsa” steals children from their beds while a military dictatorship steals their parents; and anyone you love, anyone, might be a shapeshifter. This collection reflecting Latin America and its diaspora offers bold, imaginative stories of oppression, grief, sisterhood, first love, and empowerment, and includes contributions from Chantel Acevedo, Courtney Alameda, Julia Alvarez, Ann Dávila Cardinal, Racquel Marie, Gabriela Martins, Yamile Saied Méndez, Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite, Claribel A. Ortega, Amparo Ortiz, M. García Peña, Lilliam Rivera, Jenny Torres Sanchez, and Alexandra Villasante.
