About meI have been writing about family, parenting, politics and religion since 2000. My work has appeared on Babble.com, BlogHer.com, Literary Mama.com, LesbianFamily.com, in Adoptive Families Magazine, Gay Chicago Magazine and elsewhere. My debut novel, _Jack_, is available from Musa Publishing (http://musapublishing.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9&produ...) everywhere e-books are sold. You can also read a serialized version of my previously unpublished novel, _Eden_, at
About my libraryI managed to catalog about 2/3 of my library here before I all but gave up. Still, there's more here than not. I shelve (and therefore catalog) by category, including: fiction; general nonfiction (a lot of critical and cultural theory, a lot about race in the United States, esp. African American/white race relations); poetry; drama; biography; education; adoption and parenting (both theoretical and practical); queer studies (fiction, theory, self-help etc.); religion (especially, but not exclusively Christianity) and a nice set of Library of America editions of American literature.
