Thanks to Kristi DiLallo, Columbia Journal for publishing my ghosts.
“The rules for cave diving were clear.
The wonderful and wicked smart, Mel Wells, sent me some interview questions. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to talk about Unchaste.
“What was your inspiration for the creation of Unchaste Readers?’
‘I’ve always wanted to be involved in a community of women artists, but I’d envisioned living on the land in yurts and having composting toilets. Running a reading series is a lot easier and just as fun. I’m also dead serious.” Read the rest of the interview here.

“Should I have known or been better? What does it mean when a man cries for a dog, but not for a child? What does it mean when a man shoots mapgies to show his daughter he loves her, but doesn’t say a word of it, and she never figures it out until she’s been writing about it for years. Whatever holds our grief is massive. It’s big enough and wide enough to hold the ocean. This is why I’m here pacing and writing and doing. I’m building something big enough to contain it.” – Jenny Forrester
The beautiful Michelle Gonzales, the author of Pretty, Bold Mexican Girl invited me to read in Oakland. All love and gratitude to her. I’m going to read about sin and shame and how funny all that is. Come visit! Margaret Elysia-Garcia will also be there. We’ll be reading from this or in some manner related to it or not. But here’s a picture because you’ll want this book and I haven’t posted it for at least a week.
I also hear that Ariel Gore will be there!
And Rad Dad, Tomas Moniz!
