Today I rest upon my zero gravity chair which sits on my penthouse balcony with a view into forever. Billows of soft white clouds drift lazily in the gentle blue sky. Birds fly together free in the hot, blazing sun. Emerald green oak leaves on nearby trees are just beginning to reflect hues of g... Read more of this blog post »

Hey guys !
It’s been a few weeks since I have posted something. As usual, I was encouraged or inspired by this topic because I find that its easy to look outside our circle for love.
It’s sad that sometimes we tend to desire attention or love from someone that is not adequate enough to supply it to...Read more of this blog post »

This coloring page is from a "cut" scene from "My Nativity ABCs," by Esther Yu Sumner (me). My publisher, Cedar Fort, decided they wanted all of the imagery for "My Nativ... Read more of this blog post »

Il tempo a Vilnius è variabile. Nel giro di un'ora tutto può sovvertirsi.
La mattina Rūta guardò fuori dalla finestra. Pioveva. Il telefono le diceva che fuori erano undici gradi. Sospirò. Ancora era con la testa a Roma. Al bel sole che l'aveva accolta quel novembre che vi ave... Read more of this blog post »
Nos prometimos la eternidad, vivir juntos perpetuamente, hicimos señalamientos y compromisos que no cabían en nuestras palabras, así de grandes eran nuestros sentires ¿Si recuerdas todas esas promesas de infancia?, ¡qué absurdo!, lo rápido que pasa el tiempo y lo precoces que fuimos.

Writer’s block is often caused by clashing of our feelings, where the author experiences a creative slowdown. We know what we have to say but we are afraid that it won’t measure up to our expectations or to our readers’ expectations. But hey, writer’s block is better than to give up completely,...Read more of this blog post »
So…I had a different post planned for Bi Visibility Day, but you know what? There’s been a distinct shortage of bi women (or just ‘not men’, really) in most of the stuff I’ve seen, including my own posts—I’ll hold my hands up to that. Therefore, I’m rounding off the week with Charlie (aka Charlo... Read more of this blog post »
Happy Saturday and how's the weather? Cooling down here finally!
I was recently mailed this poem and told it was in one of my mother's books. It was printed out on color paper and it looked as if the poem had been clipped and photocopied onto the paper. I made this photo art for t... Read more of this blog post »
All the Good Things has been reviewed by Gerard Woodward in The Guardian. He describes it as a ‘sparky and unsettling debut.’ He writes:
The novel’s strength lies in its language, and in the voice of Beth as she narrates her life. It draws us into a living realm of characters and emotions in just...Read more of this blog post »

Today at 4pm in Berkeley! #moxiegirlsfightback #jennifermathieu #amapforwreckedgirls (at Books Inc. in Berkeley)
As a part of my publishing services package, I got an official press release. It looks a lot like the one I made on my own, but that just goes to show how savvy and clever I am. Anyway, according to them, “In addition, the press release for your book was distributed electronically via an online p...Read more of this blog post »
There is a lot of music in this series, which is probably fitting since Nava grew up dancing and Rohan is an ex-rock star. I thought I’d share it with you. I ended up creating two lists (both found in the extras section on this site). The first one was the original list written after book one, an...Read more of this blog post »
Tiembla con restraso
ante el frío, ante el calor,
ante el placer, ante el miedo.
Mi cuerpo me odia
cuando salimos de este núcleo seguro
y sus paredes silenciosas.
I still have every record I’ve ever bought, even the embarrassing stuff. I rescued them from a cupboard a few years ago and was relieved to find that none had warped from being stored close to the boiler ( shame, shame on me).
I’m not in the market for either of these but they are things of grea...Read more of this blog post »
Staring at myself in the mirror
All filled up with thoughts benign
I reminisced Irene’s glorious life
And contemplated the journey of mine
Irene was charismatic, he had the following
I wanted to be like him and fit in his shoes
So I started working harder and sweating in the gym
Hoping all thi...
