That's a wrap!

I just finished the first draft of "Cloaked," my new western reimagining of the Little Red Riding Hood story!  Feeling very, very pleased with it, over all, but now it's time to let it rest for a week or two so I can read it with fresh perspective when I'm ready to dig into revision.

Earlier today, I shared a "playlist" for this story here on my main blog, Hamlette's Soliloquy.  If you'd like to know what kind of music I've been listening to while writing these past few months, or how music is tied to my writing process, check that out.

"Femnista" Celebrates "Star Wars"

With Rogue One due to hit theaters soon, we're focusing our last issue of Femnista on all things Star Wars.  You can find a full list of this issue's articles here.

I chose to write about my favorite character, Han Solo, and how encountering him changed the way I view people and the world.  You can read my article here.

Happy Halloween from Femnista

The 2015 film The Lone Ranger contains a somewhat surprising theme:  cannibalism.  I've explored the way filmmakers used it literally and metaphorically in my Femnista article for Halloween, "Consuming the Past: The Lone Ranger."

This Halloween, the theme is "surreal tales," so if you're looking for something both creepy and thought-provoking to read, there will likely be somethign to interest you.  A list of the issue's articles is here.

Femnista Article on "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."

The 2015 film The Man from UNCLE stayed remarkably faithful to the 1960s TV series, with one major exception:  the character of Illya Kuryakin.  In my latest Femnista article, "A Tale of Two Illyas," I theorize on why they changed him so much, but kept Napoleon Solo essentially the same.  

The focus for September and October is "Derringers and Fedoras," so visit Femnista for articles on all sorts of spies, assassins, and private eyes.
