This morning, on the bus ride into work, my phone buzzed. That's not unusual, as a lot of my friends are starting to get up and go at the same time that I'm commuting, but after the third or fourth buzz, I was a little concerned that something bad might have happened, so I paused my audiobook...

Did I mention that I turned in the second draft of my thesis last night? And that I have a major assignment due tomorrow (more on that later) and a short story for my fiction workshop that's overdue? (The working title is "Little Bastard," but it's been suggested that I change it to "Two Men...

No really, it actually is very close to the end of the list of this year's Lambda Literary Finalists that you'll see under LGBT SF/F/Horror my friend ’Nathan's novel Light listed as a finalist. This is also ’Nathan's debut novel, so I couldn't be happier for him. If you haven't read it, go order it...

The Finalists of the 25th Annual Lambda Literary Awards have been announced, so I thought I'd the next couple of weeks to visit some of the anthologies among the finalists. Some of these collections I already own, and some of them have been sitting untouched beside my bed or on my bookshelves...

So, a friend of mine wanted me to write an article for her newsletter on writing LGBTQ-themed fiction. We got our wires crossed, though, and instead of writing a how-to article on how to crack, as it were, the market, I gave her something else. Anyway, as with most things, it got me thinking, as...

I've said this many a time before, but I've been really lucky.   For one, have you met my husband?  Egad, I'm not sure how I ever earned the windfall that is my fella, but just waking up with my husband is enough to remind me every morning that I live one heck of a charmed life. Lately, I've also...

Before I get started with my first blog entry, I'd like to thank the Red Room for letting me have an author's space in their beautifully designed, intuitive web home.
