This weekend is the Nebulas conference and I was a member of a panel on “Meeting Young Readers Where They Are,” which was about how authors can create relationships with libraries and schools so they can bring their kidlit, middle grade and YA work to more audiences. I wasn’t there as a writer, though IContinue reading “Had A Great Time “Paneling””

The First Amoeba of Trolling
This morning I woke up to an interest dilemma. I’m getting spam-subscribed to a podcast that has a confirm email which contains some slurs. The confirms are sent to an email that I only use for writing-related work. It’s not the same email that is on this site. :tilts head, quirks ears: It’s simultaneously puzzlingContinue reading “The First Amoeba of Trolling”
Apex Magazine Running a Readers Choice Poll
My story “The First Promise We Break” is one of Apex Magazine’s 2022 stories and so is up for their Readers’ Choice Awards. Lots of other amazing writers are on there too, and you can vote for three! If you’re interested, head to this Google forms poll – it won’t collect your personal info.

It’s Awards Season Again & I’m Eligible
It’s SO strange to be eligible for awards. Strange in the best way. In case you haven’t been following me elsewhere, I have the following stories that are eligible for SFF-related awards this year! My short story “The First Promise We Break” came out in Apex Magazine Issue 130, in March of this year. AvailableContinue reading “It’s Awards Season Again & I’m Eligible”
I’d Be Annoyed but I’m Actually Grateful for the Timing
A few days after I posted about Instagram, SFWA (the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers’ Association) announced that they were doing a promo program on the platform. Yeah, that timing isn’t suspicious at all. (I know, I know, nothing whatsoever to do with me. Still very interesting timing.) Part of me was all “it doesn’tContinue reading “I’d Be Annoyed but I’m Actually Grateful for the Timing”

I post it all over the place but I love this particular story. “Love Like Chocolate” is out in issue 9 of Cossmass Infinities and it’s available via ebook and paper!
