Last weekend, I fell in love with Glad Day Bookshop!

If you’ve been following my Twitter posts for the past several weeks, you know how much I had been looking forward to launching The Stealth Lovers and Nothing Without Us at Glad Day Bookshop in Toronto. I’d heard amazing things about this bookstore for years from my author friends and was honoured Glad Day would …

Holy stars, I did a thing!

As co-editor of the Nothing Without Us anthology, this last few weeks felt as if I were handed the baton in the second-to-final lap of a relay race while I cried, "Oh crap, I need to deliver this to the last runner!" The "last runner" being the final production team at Presses Renaissance Press. However, …

Eight days into NaNoWriMo, and I’m okay, folks!

In the words of a famous fable: Slow and steady wins the race. If that’s true, then call me the Tortoise of NaNoWriMo. Through the use of my mathematical genius, I calculated that I need to write 1670 words a day to reach just over the 50K marker for the National Novel Writing Month’s finish …

Because I am a published author, there are conferences I must attend for learning and for self-promotion. I want to go to these things. And with this rollator, I can! Always having a seat with me is an enormous thing. Last year at Can*Con 2016, people suggested I sit on a window sill while waiting in line for a panel. That was a solution, I guess, but not a very good one. Also, I kinda hate asking people for chairs all the time. It's going to be nice to just chill and be independent.

Sexy and disabled. Yes, you can be both.

I had the pleasure of being invited to guest-blog on Blush game creator Jen Desmarais' website. She asked me to describe what's it's like to have sex while managing a disability. This is my personal story. I have a disability that causes widespread nerve pain, chronic fatigue, and mobility impairment. My turn-ons include fresh sheets, kisses …

Writing with a chronic illness.

In 2014, things were so bad for me, I was sure we needed to move. I couldn't get up and down the stairs without wanting to cry. The thought of me once run-walking five days a week to now barely being able to take steps without a cane freaked me out. I felt panic-stricken. My sleep was atrocious because of experiencing pain levels 8 and 9 on a frequent basis. All my activities had come to a halt. I was practically house-bound. And since I am an extrovert, the loneliness was unbearable.
