Clips and Portfolio

I write and publish about 100 essays a year, mostly about books. I specialize in science fiction and fantasy, fairy tales, children’s books, nonfiction, and audiobooks. I also write about parenting and feminism in pop culture. I’m a regular contributor to Book Riot, where I write weekly, book-related posts, and I’m co-creator and co-writer of Baby Librarians, a children’s book review website. My work has also appeared on StarTrek.com, The Bronzeville Bee, forthcoming on Audible’s blog, and more.

Here are selected clips by topic.
