In Border Town Chica, A Memoir, Patricia Alarcón Missler paints colorful stories portraying a young girl growing up in a small south Texas border town. Readers see the author as a six-year-old picking out a special pastry, and as a young woman picking out a special boyfriend. A trip to the racetrack with Papi. Bandidos on the road. Two sisters on their own in Mexico City. Standing atop the Teotihuacán Pyramids. Fortunetellers in a cave bar, and more… Share the camaraderie and adventures of her familia and friends. Readers from diverse backgrounds will relate to these poignant stories, which transcend cultures. Inspiring, humorous, and insightful—at times intimately personal—Border Town Chica, A Memoir, breaks from the stereotype of the Mexican-American experience.

After almost four decades of calling the island of Hawaii home, Patricia Alarcón Missler, and her husband, moved to Bellingham, WA in 2021, where she continues to unfold her creative journey. As an artist, she is well-known for large abstracts and also vibrant and whimsical watercolor paintings with collectors all over the world. As a writer, she published her first book in 2014 and a decade later is publishing a revised edition of her book now titled, Border Town Chica, A Memoir.
