Dennis Book Club

January 16th, 2022 Today, at work, some of my co-workers, organically, spontaneously, decided to choose one of my books and started a book club around it. It was one of the neatest, sweetest things I have ever, as a writer, watched unfold around me, and I literally did nothing to make it happen. But IContinue reading “Dennis Book Club”

#artvsartist2021

December 13th, 2021 A lot of my favorite people — my artist friends — have shared their #artvsartist year, and I am nothing if not a wannabe waiting outside the house party, watching my breath freeze in the cold, so here is mine. These posts are also often about gratitude, and I have no shortageContinue reading “#artvsartist2021”

Shaking When Stirred

December 12th, 2021 I worked a lot this weekend. (If you popped into the restaurant at any time, virtually open to close, on Saturday or Sunday, I was there to delight/annoy you.) This little girl missed me. A lot. She always greets me at the door, but tonight was different. She missed me so muchContinue reading “Shaking When Stirred”

Fantastic Four (years sober)

December 9th, 2021 It’s not my birthday today. But I did begin to exist in the world in a new way. I am four years sober as of right this moment. This will come as no surprise if you know how dramatic I can be, but for a long time I was waiting for theContinue reading “Fantastic Four (years sober)”

Long time no talk, I counted — Holiday Newsletter 2021

November 29th, 2021 Howdy, dear friends, precious family, and mortal enemies. When I added you to this email list, I promised I wouldn’t spam you; it’s been over a full year since I’ve sent you a newsletter (369 days, to be exact), so I’ll be eating a cookie (or sleeve of them) tonight to celebrateContinue reading “Long time no talk, I counted — Holiday Newsletter 2021”

Gobstopper

November 9th, 2021 Talking shit about people is about as human as it gets. It actually fascinates me how most folk, no matter how old they get, no matter what they do for a living, no matter how much they have going on in their own lives, never get less excited to sit down andContinue reading “Gobstopper”

#NerdinOutCon3 Recap

October 24th, 2021 Towards the end of the last day of NerdinOut Con III in Rochester, one of my new friends from Artist Alley came over to my table. He wasn’t sure if I had noticed, but a girl had just been literally jumping up and down with her latest purchase, beyond excited over theContinue reading “#NerdinOutCon3 Recap”

This Weekend: NerdinOut Con III

This Saturday and Sunday, October 23rd and 24th, I will be at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester for NerdinOut Con III, and I am terribly excited for it. VIPs will be able to get in at 10Continue reading “This Weekend: NerdinOut Con III”

So What

October 20th, 2021 Almost four years ago, when I started writing about things that people generally don’t talk about on the internet, it was scary. I remember laying in a hospital bed and weighing the pros and cons of sharing these pieces of myself. There was a large part of me that felt like IContinue reading “So What”

Them + Us: Special Edition

October 9th, 2021 On April 1st, 2013, I released my first book, Them. It’s a violent, funny, absolutely absurd story featuring mysterious aliens, deeply flawed humans, and buckets of vomit and blood (and a shot of excrement). Exactly a year later, I returned with Us, the second half of the traumatizing tale. In 2021, IContinue reading “Them + Us: Special Edition”
