My First Transvaginal Ultrasound

Posted on Mar 4, 2013 in Blog, Feminism, Sexuality | 1 comment

I spent Friday in the emergency room. I had quick-onset, debilitating flank pain. It was scary.  While I thought it could be kidney stones or something I could tough out, there are too many organs in that spot to take it lightly.  So off to the county hospital I went. The hospital I went to is a teaching hospital, so there are a lot of baby doctors running around being all cute and awkward.  My doctor was a young, timid, Muslim man.  I assume he’s a virgin.  He tried to be a pro as he...

This Halloween, Why Not Make an Investment in Lesbian Werewolves?

Halloween. While your neighborhood is filled with screaming trick-or-treaters and insecure adults in costumes they keep hiking down to cover their asses, you might be wondering “What’s in it for me?” Well. . . have you heard of lesbian werewolves?

This lovely invective has been slung at me a handful times since Lunatic Fringe debuted last September, and it’s gotten to the point where I need to sling back. No one will take me seriously. . .

WisCon 2012 – My Experience

Posted on Jun 2, 2012 in Blog, Feminism, Gender, LGBTQ, Literature, Publishing, Writing | 2 comments

Phew. I’m back! Despite averaging 4 hours/night of sleep and gaining 4 pounds (damn you Wisconsin and your tasty beers and cheese curds!), my experience of WisCon this year was fabulous. Unlike last year, this year I had a real, live book that real, live people have read.  I had my first fan interaction during the Gathering, from a man who just wanted to say he loved my book. I actually squeed (not peed, though I may have wanted to) from excitement.  Here in the Bay Area, if people...
