Shake It and Bake It

You know I can’t stop making stuff. Baking is my latest stress reliever. A way to challenge myself. A way to relax after grading papers. In terms of challenging myself, I’ve made raspberry cakes that looked as adorable as they did formidable: I also tried my hand at panna cotta. My friends and kids enjoyed,Continue reading “Shake It and Bake It”

The Empty Page

I’m floored to announce another non-fiction text from McFarland, forthcoming in 2023 or 2024: The work was inspired by a co-written article from 2021 in KOME, “Tug of War: Social Media, Cancel Culture, and Diversity for Girls and The 100.” My colleague and good friend, Allison Budaj, is co-editing this anthology with me for McFarland.Continue reading “The Empty Page”

I’ve found a “great” recipe, only to find my macarons turning out hollow, lacking feet, or just altogether collapsing. Now, I truly have found a great recipe, full of useful tips for making the perfect macaron. After usingContinue reading “Making the Perfect Macaron”

Editing Like Mad

Most of my summer days have been overtaken by editing. This is not outside the scope of normalcy for me. However, it’s not often that I edit non-fiction. Sometimes They Come Back Again: The Latest Cycle of Diverse Horror Fictions is the non-fiction title I’ve been editing. The work builds off Robin Coleman’s Horror Noire:Continue reading “Editing Like Mad”
