I’m busy writing my first book!
Stay tuned for updates in 2019!
One of my earliest memories as a creative person is sharing the picture book I made at school with my parents. It was a cardboard bound book covered in textured wallpaper. Each of the handful of pages had three lines for writing my story with blank space to draw a corresponding picture of sophisticated stick figures above. When I got home, I showed it to them in the living room, the special room with the white rug typically reserved for holidays. When they praised my young talent, a spark was ignited.
Since then, I wrote mostly within my diaries, journals, and Books of Everything (as I refer to them). There I captured my deepest truths and darkest thoughts (as well as endless To Do lists).
Until now. After a significant life transition that ultimately led to me founding Mophead Femme, I am documenting my experience, organizing my thoughts, and sharing my story in my first book, The Year After Seven Years: A Queer Story of Break-up & Love.
The Year After Seven Years is a story about grief, change, and honesty, about coming of age and coming into oneself. It is about a femme exploring her sexuality. It is about a queer break-up that centers love and defies mainstream narratives. It's also about how fucking hard it is to find affordable housing in the Bay Area, too.
