Here is the latest news:
Happy holidays! I’m very pleased to be part of a forthcoming anthology, Hallows’ Eve, edited by Ellen Datlow and Lisa Morton. In addition to stories about scheming jack-o’-lanterns, vengeful ghosts, otherworldly changelings, disturbingly realistic haunted attractions, masks that cover terrifying faces, murderous urban legends, parties gone bad, cult Halloween movies, and even trick or treating in the future, Hallows’ Eve will offer chilling explorations of related holidays like All Souls’ Day, Dia de los Muertos, and Devil’s Night. The sixteen other authors included are: Kelley Armstrong, Pat Cadigan, Brian Evenson, Jeffrey Ford, Heather Graham, Eric J. Guignard, Stephen Graham Jones, Kate Jonez, Paul Kane, John Langan, John R. Little, Jonathan Maberry, Seanan McGuire, S. P. Miskowski, Garth Nix, and Joanna Parypinski. Look for it in 2017!
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 in 2017, 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.
