These two great events eluded mention on this website at the time of their occurrence: Resonate 1/31 Oakland, where I sold books at a mini-table for this party promoting the feminine in electronic music culture, and Two-Hour Transport 3/27 Seattle, where I delivered a featured book reading to the seasoned writers’ gathering & open mic.




Above, I can be seen in profile to the right of the brightly lit corner of art to the upper right of the crowd, discussing my books with someone during Naughty Princess‘ excellent set. Following are a few other highlights:

While I’m late mentioning this event, I’m doing so just in time to let you know about Resonate’s next workshop for women making music:

I read from Abyss Surrounding as a featured author, along with Patrick Hurley, for my second participation in this great group of Seattle-area sci-fi writers and appreciators! I also moved a small house that day, and wore my dirt boots to the reading.

Me and Stan Lee

Fact: my dad has loved Stan Lee longer than he’s loved my mother. He learned to draw from Jack Kirby, and I learned to draw the same way he did – by taking tracing paper to our favorite comics, without encouragement, the sole comics lover in our young lives.

I drew these waiting in line to see The Man, had to recall the outfits by heart – Psylocke (Kwannon/Betsy Braddock), Archangel, Rogue, Gambit, Jean Grey, and Cyclops.

Here’s to the godfather of modern comics, the Marvel Universe, and to my dad, who was there long before I was.
