Here is the latest news:
Congrats to Live Five and Fire in the Hole and their recent successful production of The Pink Unicorn in Saskatoon. The Saskatoon Star Phoenix called the play “very funny,” “wonderfully witty and fast-moving,” and concluded, “Not all art is political, but the work that is can help drive important conversations, act as an entry point and even change minds. The Pink Unicorn has the power to do that with gender diversity.” Other productions of the play are scheduled to perform in Pittsburgh and Minneapolis, so watch this space for more updates–and if you have friends and family in those areas, please encourage them to buy tickets. The Pink Unicorn tells the story of a Christian widow, living in a small town in Texas, whose life is thrown into turmoil when her teenage daughter announces she is genderqueer and starting a Gay and Straight Alliance at the local high school.
The Enchanted Conversation has published one of my new fairytales. “Lucy in the Sky” is a tribute to childhood, dogs and the Beatles, and tells the story of an eight year old girl who matches wits with the Faery Queen.
A flash fiction piece “Heard,” is in a recent issue of Metaphorosis Magazine. “Heard” was inspired by the speculative articles and reports earlier this year about cloning baby mammoths.
My story “You Go Back,” about a demon set loose in P.T. Barnum’s American Museum, is up at The Gallery of Curiosities, a weird and wonderful fiction podcast. If you have some time, please give it a listen–the talented Keith Edie is the actor reading it!
