I had a stroke last week. I was trying to find a different way to start this blog, but writing my way in felt disingenuous. So there it is, today’s fun-filled topic. But I’m not talking about the stroke as such. I want to talk about stories. When the ambulance took me away, I didn’t… Continue reading The good news is that I’ll be okay…
On Saturday 12th I’m going to be the Queering the Supernatural panel at ClexaCon. And earlier I’ll be speaking on the publishing panel under my other name. It’s free—come by and hang out while we talk books and writing and who knows what else!
September. The year has gone by in a strange haze. I’ve been baffled and befuddled, oftentimes despairing and despondent. And now, we head toward autumn, and I’m thinking tonight about stories.

I’m lucky enough to be included in the Bold Strokes Bookathon, UK. It’s an online festival dedicated to lgbtq books and authors, and it would be really great if you came along.

Well hello there. I haven’t seen you in a while. Are you well? Are you being crazy productive in lockdown? Or just watching lots of shows and eating your way through the house? Either is good, as is anything in between. I work from home so I’ve been staying busy playing with other people’s words… Continue reading That bit of oomph
