Pretty thrilled to say that a professional theater, Austin Playhouse, has commissioned me to write a children's theater version of my book Summer and Bird. School performances run May 1-10, 2019, with eight public performances Friday - Sunday May 3-12.
On June 25, 2019, I will be offering an online version of my popular “First Draft to Best Draft: Revising Like a Professional” class through the Writers League of Texas. It’s basically “everything I know about writing condensed into three hours” so come check it out!
On August 2, 2019, I will be the visiting author for The Writing Barn’s Putting Pen to Paper: Creative Writing Intensive for Teens. Absolutely cannot wait.
The Cabinet of Curiosities website is experiencing some sort of horrific undead half-life--another way of saying we're posting stories there only sporadically right now. My newest one is about a ghost fox. Watch out for ghost foxes, man.
Massive un-humblebragging, forgive me, but where else but on my own website? I was nominated for Best Fiction/Poetry Writer in the 2017 Austin Chronicle Readers Poll. Also was nominated as Outstanding Actress in a Comedy (for John, Hyde Park Theatre) and Outstanding Actress in a Drama (for Song About Himself, Capital T Theatre) by Austin's B. Iden Payne Awards. Universe conspiring very kindly to boost my ego.
The Austin Chronicle did a really lovely interview with me in their September 30, 2016 issue. All about fairy-making and Burning Man and learning lines and why you should make art. YES YOU.
My ten-minute play "Right into the Night Sky" was nominated as Outstanding Original Script at the 2016 local B. Iden Payne theater awards, up against four, you know, actual, full-length plays. A canary flying (briefly) with the eagles!
I wrote a post on writing in the omniscient point of view for Yellow Bird Editors. Let's bring it back y'all!
