My queer illustrated memoir “Still Stace: My Gay Christian Coming-Of-Age Story” recently published on Oct 19, 2021.
My passion is illustrating and writing kids books! I’m always working on about five (queer) book ideas at once.
ANNOUNCEMENT May 1, 2022 – It’s official – STILL STACE IS GETTING AN AUDIOBOOK!
Starting April 6, 2022 – Still Stace will be used for an 8-week Zoom book study headed up by the lovely folks at Susanville United Methodist Church in Susanville, California. I’m going to join them each week for the discussions, and I’m really looking forward to it! This is open to ALL, so shoot me a message if you want to join!
Thanks to my friends at Fraser Valley News for the coverage about Still Stace being a Finalist for a 2021 Foreward Indie Award for Juvenile Nonfiction! (March 16, 2022)
I spoke IN PERSON at Golden Ears United Church in Maple Ridge, BC for their PIE Day event! (March 12, 2022. I speak from about 13 mins – 33 mins on this video.)
What does it mean to become an AFFIRMING CHURCH? (Jan 29, 2022)
I was so excited to partner with The Bureau of General Services—Queer Division, an independent, all-volunteer queer cultural center, bookstore, and event space hosted by The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in New York City. (Dec 11, 2021. 60 min video)
Here’s me opening up my author copies of STILL STACE – with GLEE!
When I’m not drawing or writing, I enjoy hiking, biking or jogging around BC, dancing with my kids, and staying up late sharing cups of (perhaps too strong) coffee.
I am fascinated by life. I believe there is beauty in everyone, and a smidgen of kindness can go a long way.
