Are You Prettier Than Your Mother? Thu Sep 12 2013

Know the Mother by Desiree Cooper Tue Jul 12 2016
There is no better time for flash fiction than the summer.

Being Raised by Lesbians Thu Nov 14 2013
The story everyone wants to hear isn’t the story I want to tell. Everyone wants to know what it was like to be raised by lesbians, how we functioned, what made it different. I want to talk about other things, the things that formed me and shaped me and scarred me. Not my mother’s sexuality. view at brainchildmag
