Emma is the only member of a supercharged team without powers, and she isn’t always taken seriously.
I had a great time attending FanX 2018 as a guest. It’s always wonderful to meet readers especially youth in areas that may not have access to queer content or know that such content exists.

I always love being at the Ripped Bodice bookstore, and it was so much fun chatting with amazing authors Audrey Coulthurst, Amy Spalding and Britta Lundin on our Queer Voices in YA conversation.

One of the challenging parts about editing (and saddest) is cutting scenes, especially scenes I loved to write. I had so much extra story that I thought it would be fun to share some of these with you.
