Her name was not taken from my last name, though I realized that synchronicity soon after the first draft was completed. The reason I named her Danny was because I came up with the name Dreadnought first, and initially I toyed around with giving her a name that could create alliteration if they were used in conjunction--as in, Dreadnought Danny or Danny Dreadnought. I junked that idea, but by then Danielle was already an established character in my mind, and shifting gears to rename her would be too much of a hassle.(less)

Rep. Bonamici,


We are in a bleak time, but I think there is still hope. Several times in my lifetime, power has passed between the parties during a Presidential election, only to be passed back during a subsequent midterm. I believe that is the opportunity Democrats must be seeking starting today.


Two years of unified Republican rule will bring many hardships to our country, but it will also brin...

April’s Recent Updates

Trauma and Recovery by Judith Lewis Herman
“The conflict between the will to deny horrible events and the will to proclaim them aloud is the central dialectic of psychological trauma.”
Judith Lewis Herman
Trauma and Recovery by Judith Lewis Herman
“Many abused children cling to the hope that growing up will bring escape and freedom.

But the personality formed in the environment of coercive control is not well adapted to adult life. The survivor is left with fundamental problems in basic trust, autonomy, and initiative. She approaches the task of early adulthood――establishing independence and intimacy――burdened by major impairments in self-care, in cognition and in memory, in identity, and in the capacity to form stable relationships.

She is still a prisoner of her childhood; attempting to create a new life, she reencounters the trauma.”
Judith Lewis Herman
Pagan Theology by Michael York
"mankind has a habit of making lists, the best pizza you ever ate was at that obscure restaurant in an alley of Venice, the best live show you ever saw was at 19 with that girl and so on. One occasionally makes changes but these are the reference p..." Read more of this review »

The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker by Leanna Renee Hieber
"This is the only book of mine I'll ever rate, and while it won't be the best book I ever write, I'll remain particularly partial to it. After a decade-long journey to publication, my debut remains the book of my heart. "

“I see a world that is terrified of me. Terrified of someone who would reject manhood. Terrified of a girl who knows who she is and what she’s capable of. They are small, and they are weak, and they will not hurt me ever again. My name is Danielle Tozer. I am a girl. No one is strong enough to take that from me anymore.”
April Daniels, Dreadnought

“You think it’s a uterus that makes a woman? Bullshit. You feel like you’re a girl, you live it, it’s part of you? Then you’re a girl. That’s the end of it, no quibbling. You’re as real a girl as anyone.”
April Daniels, Dreadnought

“So all those great responsibilities that come with great power, those are only yours if you want them to be. It’s not fair to demand more of you, and worse, it’s not safe. This is a hard life. Someone as strong as you, if suffering from mental and emotional trauma, could quickly become dangerous. So a lot of people are going to want you to be a whitecape, but only you can decide if that’s right for you.” “Maybe”
April Daniels, Dreadnought
