- What does representation mean in both fiction and in life?
- What lives in the shadows that lurk out of the corner of your eye?
- How are we connected through race, gender identity, ability, and so much more?
I am a writer, audiophile, unapologetic Social Justice Warrior, survivor, and dedicated chocoholic. My husband owns a Friendly Local Game Store, and my family owns my heart. I have been published in markets such as Jim Baen's UNIVERSE, Daily Science Fiction, Pseudopod, Podcastle, and Cast of Wonders. I have a drawer full of unpublished novels (don't we all), and years of service advocating for those with disabilities, mental illness, and the LGBTQIA+ community to my name.
My short story collection Godfall & Other Stories will be released by Hydra House Books in early 2018. My work is irreverent, occasionally thoughtful, sometimes dark, often silly, and dedicated to living a life inspired by Theodore Sturgeon: "Ask the next question. And the one after that."
Your monthly pledge gains you access to stories, sneak peeks of works in progress (short stories and novels), essays, my handmade papercraft cards, and those beautiful questions. We'll explore what it means to be Other in a world of -isms, and stand tall to Resist. I'll share chocolate recipes. Who knows? We may even have fun with a special sort of Tuckerization.
So, dip your toes in the water, smile at the sharks, and let's ask the next question together.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you again soon.
