So it’s the week between Christmas and New Year’s, and I imagine a lot of people are still in family mode. The kids are breaking in their new shoes or figuring out their new electronics or draining the batteries on the new toys at record rates. The parents are probably looking around their houses and Read more about Intermission[…]
I think I’m done reeling from the election results. I might have my balance back. Now, I’m rolling up my sleeves and ready to fight. I’m ready to take on those who want to see immigrants and Muslims and People of Color and LGBTQ people shuffled out of their country, into dark corners, or into some other kind of oblivion. President Trump is the dying gasp of a white patriarchy who can’t handle otherness, and while it may feel like a hurricane force wind right now, I’ve got lungs, too, and I plan to scream back. I will be like Lieutenant Dan, on the mast of a small ship riding stormy waves, screaming into the wind and the rain, “Is that all you got! Come on! Bring it!” […]
I had to take down that last post. It was too much like rubbing sandpaper on an already very raw nerve. I thought maybe it would help to talk about it, but it wasn’t. It only made me feel worse. To those who commented, thank you for your very thoughtful words.
So wow, the last month or so has been kind of nuts, hasn’t it? I don’t know about you, but busy doesn’t begin to describe it.

In a word: incredible.
I’m over at Diverse Reader today talking about my feelings from before the UK Meet, and sharing something I’ve held close to the vest since the beginning of my career. Take a peek and drop a comment. Come say hello, maybe make a face with me.
Kate is in Scotland with her family on holiday but has received word that her interview with the US consulate in London is scheduled for September 3rd. This is the last hurdle in our application for a fiancée visa for her to come to the US so we can marry. This is where they talk with her Read more about Interview (the Last Step)[…]
I was on the phone with a dear friend yesterday and the subject of the various romance cons came up. He asked me how long it was until I fly to England to participate in the UK Meet. I was shocked to realize it’s a mere six weeks away. What’s more shocking is I’m less afraid Read more about Nerves Ahoy[…]
Some of you, but not all, know I’m engaged to Kate Aaron, and because she’s English and I’m American, we have to go through the immigration process. I haven’t posted on it much because frankly, it’s a lot of handwringing, asking why the hell the government needs to know that, and a hell of a lot Read more about Rant: Marginalization for Profit[…]
