I've already started working on what comes when the series is done, but not ready to announce it just yet.

White Writers: Sharing Memes is Not Enough

Wire and HoneyWire and Honey

There have been countless discussions – in person, online, on TV – about how white people can be effective allies for people of color. These are not always easy conversations.


Last fall, I attended a one-day conference on race in the HIV community. At least 85% of the attendees and speakers were black; I was conspicuously in the minority. I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that the discus

Gorgeous physical book - you'll miss a lot if you get the ebook or audio version.

Something for everyone: theatre fans, history buffs, writers, music lovers.

A book you'll return to again and again.
