We’re in a pandemic situation. This is how I’m doing.

Hey, lovely humans who follow this blog! As of this date, the City of Ottawa is pretty much slowed right down. It's weird: while I'm typing, I can hear birds singing their flirty songs.

Calling for a Disbanding of Cliques and the Culture of Fear

For the past several days I’ve been incensed, heartbroken, and triggered to the nth degree over the allegations posted by professionals who worked for/with ChiZine Publications (CZP).

Masking: The Fine Art of Faking Being Neurotypical

I’m autistic. You don’t know how freeing it is to write that. Every single time I do, I feel like a little more of that burden I’ve been carrying for decades is being lifted off my shoulders. I’m one of those cases (as happens to many autistic cisgender women) where I only discovered this last …

It’s Monday morning, and Can-Con 2017 is over. I MADE IT, I MADE IT! WHOOOPIEEEE! Oh, let me explain. The one thing I really wanted to do no matter what was attend Can-Con this year. I’ve had a wonderful 12 months of networking with amazing authors, many of whom are now friends, and I knew …
