Once upon a time, there was a blog.
Starting off as a way to document the great adventure that was our cross-country relocation from the east coast to the unpopulated corner of Washington State, this evolved into my near daily commentary on life in the not-big not-city. These days one can find here:
- Excerpts from my writing, which includes memoir, humor, and speculative fiction.
- Self-deprecating humor regarding the absurd circumstances I encounter on a regular basis.
- Commentary about the state of affairs in the LGBt community
- Insights, however ridiculous, about the thriving metropolis that is Walla Walla, Washington.
- Travel and food writing documenting the strange, exciting, and quirky places we experience.
To be sure, if I find Eva Gabor out here singing about green acres, I promise I’ll take a picture.
I’ve guest blogged for Bitch magazine several times on politics and popular culture. I also wrote a weekly feature on LGBT YA writing at GayYA.org. I contributed to a blog about consuming popular culture, called I Fry Mine in Butter. And I regularly contribute to Amwriting.org with short fiction and articles on the business of writing.
I created a blog for my memoir, Bumbling into Body Hair: The Story of an Accident-Prone Transsexual, published in March 2012 by Booktrope Editions. It’s my brand of hilarious. Bumbling was a finalist in the 2010 Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association Literary Contest for memoir. I also have a short story, “Cursed,” in the anthology, The Collection: Short Fiction from the Transsexual Vanguard, published by Topside Press (October 16, 2012).
I was a Lambda Literary Foundation Fellow in their 2013 Emerging Voices Workshop, working in the fiction cohort with Samuel Delany.
I have a short story, Underwater, published in the inaugural issue of SPLIT Quarterly. Make sure you stop by and read the issue! You will find a short horror story by me, Night Rounds, in the February 2011 issue of Twisted Dreams. For a magical realism story, check out Angst & Metamorphosis on the amwriting.org blog. And for some food writing of mine, check out issue #6 of Remedy Quarterly.
For more of me online, you can find me on Twitter as @EverettMaroon, and over on Facebook. I always appreciate comments, feedback, and links from people!
