Hello my wonderful community!

At long last, after quite a roller coaster ride, my debut teen novel will be published. This upcoming Tuesday, October 2, 2018, Queer as a Five-Dollar Bill heads out into the world, and into the hands, and minds, and hearts of readers.

Some recent good news includes this feature article in Publishers Weekly "Bringing History into the Light: An Indie Success Story” in their Sept 24, 2018 issue and online here: https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/authors/pw-select/article/78104-bringing-history-into-the-light-an-indie-success-story.html  

I’ll be having two days of parties to celebrate (Oct 2, 2018 online, and Oct 13, 2018 all over Los Angeles), and I’m hoping you can join me for some or all of the fun ahead!


A virtual Facebook Live party on Tuesday October 2, 2018

This is actually in two parts:

From 9am-10am Pacific

And then

From Noon-1pm Pacific


In those two hours, with an eBook price drop (from $6.99 down to $2.99) and a super-special offer to get a FREE AUDIOBOOK of the novel, we’ll see if we can get Queer as a Five-Dollar Bill to hit the Amazon eBook bestseller list!

I’ll answer questions, and share some cool things that have been happening with the book (including the in-production audiobook), and we’ll all cheer as we join together to empower LGBTQ and Allied Teens!

If we’re not already connected on Facebook, I’m


over there. If you’re on Facebook, ping me, and I’ll bounce you back the invite to make it easy.
