I Dream of Romance Heroes Who Defy the Patriarchy

Where Dwell the Brave at Heart

I have long had a a love affair with young adult literature. Especially of the fantasy variety. Growing up my favorite authors were Madeleine L’Engle, Roald Dahl, Dianna Wynn Jones, Patricia C. Wrede, and (of course) JK Rowling. I still go back and reread some […]

Writing First Thing

I am participating in NaNoWriMo this year. I have never won, but this year, I will. This morning I got to wake up and fulfill a life long dream: spend the entire morning writing. Despite going to school a gazillion years to earn my degree […]
