A sense of place

The first chapter of my serialized novel, A Coven in Essex County, was published last month, and the second chapter was published recently. It’s probably about time I made a post about them. In the first chapters, I attempted to create a sense of place, to highlight the town and a confined space within it. The […]

Announcement

It’s old news at this point, but on June 21st, the emerging literary website Visitant. However, I failed to post it on my author blog, so here it is: The official announcement! Visitant will be publishing my novel, “A Coven in Essex County”, in serialized monthly installments. You can read the first one here: https://visitantlit.com/2016/06/21/a-coven-in-essex-county-part-1/ I completed […]

Nexus Game Fair and Beyond

I published an article on FemHype about my experience at Nexus Game Fair this weekend. Unfortunately, due to a lack of response about a tentacle rape game featured at the convention, I do not think I will be returning. It was still a time to meet great people and learn some new games, and for that I am […]

Masques, and also Murder (and a little costuming)

(Okay, don’t throw your money at your computer. Put numbers into the “pay what you will” box. It’s sort of like a calculator.) I truly enjoyed […]

Discussing Race through Music Videos

When it comes to film critique, there is a lot to talk about. […]

Tabletop Gaming and Personal Identity

I wrote a piece of the rad website FemHype on my experience at the Nexus Game Fair outside Milwaukee at the end of June, and my experiences at conventions in general. There’s a lot more to be said about my experiences as a woman that grew up gaming and going to cons, but I don’t have […]

On Women and Mining

I have just finished an internship at a history museum in the intermountain Western United States. The museum primarily deals with mining, since that is what brought many white settlers into the area. Every historical scholarship community has its accepted tropes and narratives, and this small town was no different. Naturally, the first thing I […]
