I live in Oakland, California and am available for local speaking engagements and things, so if you want me to show up and talk about horror writing, women in horror writing, African Americans and horror writing, black women in horror writing, or any of these other things I enjoy blogging about, I’d be happy to. But you have to email me to get my phone number because I’m not posting it here. Thank you.
