Happy Pride Month fellow #LGBTQIA people!

Happy Pride Month fellow #LGBTQIA people! 🌈
Some of you may not know that I have six books published – STAINED; SCARS; HUNTED; PARALLEL VISIONS; DRAGON SPEAKER: THE LAST DRAGON; and SKINWALKERS: WALKING BOTH SIDES. They’re all #YAlit. The first two are YA suspense and all the others are fantasy, including the last two which are hi-lo (high interest, low vocabulary). The ones that have my strongest voice, #LGBTQIA characters, and that deal with trauma and healing are the first four, though I feel like they all have small pieces of my soul.

If you are a teen boy, work with boys, or have a son, I hope you’ll read this important, powerful, and eye-opening article

If you are a teen boy, work with boys, or have a son, I hope you’ll read this important, powerful, and eye-opening article by @halseanderson about boys and consent, and then have some open, honest discussions. If we want a world with less sexual violence, we need to have these conversations and help boys understand how important consent is.
