I’m the author of two books, My Husband Betty (2004) and She’s Not the Man I Married (2006) , both of which are still in print, still read by crossdressers, their partners; by gender theorists and historians; by counselors, therapists, and psychiatrists.The best way to keep up with my work is to join me on Patreon, where I’ve been publishing excepts from the upcoming book, works about grief and loss, and as ever, endless ruminations on the weirdness that is my marriage and gender.
I started my blog en|gender in 2003 and am proud that it was one of the first about gender, trans issues, and feminism; despite being somewhat quiet these days, there’s a vast trove of meditations on trans community politics and identities.
Despite not seeking out publishing opportunities as often as I should, I’ve recently been published by Cornell’s literary magazine Epoch, and numerous pieces I’ve written have appeared in anthologies such as Queer and Catholic and Nobody Passes, and I’ve even got an erotic story or two tucked into anthologies such as Tristan Taormino’s Take Me There.
I wrote a foreword (backwards, and in heels) with Diane Anderson Minshall and an afterword for an anthology by partners (Love, Always, Transgress Press).
Online, I’ve contributed to On the Issues and Jezebel amongst others.
