Hello, friends! I’m super excited because this weekend my story “It’s in the Yard” was produced for the NoSleep Podcast.
NoSleep is one of my favorite podcasts, the kind where I buy every season pass and as soon as I get an episode notification I’ll often drop whatever I’m doing to listen. It’s so cool to get to be part of the podcast and to hear my name said on it. I hope it won’t be the last time!
Hello friends! This news is a couple months old at the moment, but I still wanted to get it posted here!
I’m going to be in THE (OTHER) F WORD: A CELEBRATION OF THE FAT & FIERCE, an amazing anthology edited by Angie Manfredi! I wrote a letter to my younger writer-self encouraging her to write fat characters instead of feeling stuck in the same slim fantasy heroine trap that I spent much of my young writing life in.
I’m so honored to be in an anthology with such an amazing line-up of contributors, and I can’t wait for you to get to read it! The anthology hits shelves on 9/24/19 but you can pre-order it now!
My other writing news is that along with my continuing Pretty Little Liars reaction series, “Texts From A”, I also wrote “Bang of Thrones”, a Game of Thrones final season romantic relationship recap series for Frolic! (Handy links to all of them:      )
If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, you can maybe imagine what it was like to write a recap series for that, uh, interesting final season at all, much less one focused 100% on the romance.
(Which is to say: a lot of fun but also not easy! They didn’t want us to feel any joy at all!)
So the first one of these went up over a week ago but I forgot that I should probably uh publish it here.
I’m now a contributing writer on Frolic. Every other Friday, there will be a post from me talking about watching Pretty Little Liars for the first time. It’s possibly the most fun I’ve had writing in a long time, and so far people seem to agree it’s fun to read!
My second post will be going up on 2/8, and you can catch up with my post about the pilot here.
It’s a good article. There’s questions to be asked about why a thin man had to write it and why did it take a thin man saying things fat people have been saying forever to get people to listen, but I think it’s overall good.
There are also places, however, where the conversation needs to be pushed a little farther, and Huffington Post invited me to write about that in their Opinion section.
