I'm a YA writer who spends too much time on the internet. My first novel, FAIR COIN, is available now from Pyr.

I felt so angry at the UCSB massacre (an article about this incident and a script of his video’s speech) and the sexism we’re blind to everyday so I drew about my opinions on sexism to channel my rage.

I’m very happy the #YesAllWomen tag is going strong on U.S. Twitter right now. :D

Announcing...YA Runs A 5K!!

yarunsa5k:

We are so excited to announce our YA Runs A 5K Fundraiser!

On July 19, 2014 we, Susan Dennard and Melody Simpson, are running a 5K! (Or…perhaps we’re just walking if Sooz can’t get her butt in gear and off the office chair.)

We’d love for you to join us if you can, or if you can’t reach…

This is a great cause, and you can get a signed copy of Fair Coin as a reward!

Just a couple more minutes of Batman Beyond in the world (with Kevin Conroy!) make me ridiculously happy. Best 75th anniversary for a superhero ever!
