By day, I teach Psychology and Women/Gender Studies at Sacramento City College. By night, I write children’s books and engage in other forms of subversive creativity. My debut picture book, This Day in June, won the 2015 ALA Stonewall Award, was a Rainbow List Top Ten pick, and won the IRA’s 2014 Notable Books for a Global Society Award. How’s that for my first shot at writing children’s books! My books, teaching, and general commentary have been featured in publications ranging from School Library Journal to The Advocate. I’ve also been interviewed on National Public Radio, the BBC News, “Good Day Sacramento,” and various podcasts.
