Three Important Things.

1.)  Tomorrow (Thursday, 12/6) I’m going to be a guest on KCUR’s (89.3) program Up To Date. I’ll be talking about what it was like when my dad came out of the closet. My dad will also be on the air, and Amie Shea, one of my partners on The Gay Dad Project, will be chiming in, too. The program begins at 11:00 a.m. CST and lasts an hour. If you’re not in the Kansas City area, don’t worry–you can listen live HERE. You can also ask questions or speak up in several ways while you’re listening:

  • Call 816-235-2888 during the broadcast
  • email your questions or comments to our program at
  • Comment or ask a question on the show topic page (click here and look for today’s topic(s))
  • KCUR’s Facebook page
  • #KCURUpToDate">Tweet Up to Date (we’re @KCURUptoDate).

2.)  The Listen To Your Mother : Kansas City blog is up and running! We published our first post last week. If you missed it, head on over HERE to catch up! Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 11, 2013, because you’ll want to join me at Unity Temple on the Plaza to hear some amazing writers.

The Listen To Your Mother Show is coming to Kansas City!









3.)  I am taking a weekish-long blogcation after this post. When I return, I’d like to resume my Writer Roots series on Fridays. So leave me a note in the comments if you’re interested in guest posting here on a Friday. What I want you to do? Share all about your love of writing and blogging, and when/how/why you started. Any bits of inspiration or insight, etc. I want you to be you. And share a piece of yourself on my blog.

Thanks for reading. I’ll miss you all & will be back soon!

I just need the post the day before along w/ any links (feel free to pimp links to your blog, FB, twitter, etc as well as links to fave posts you’ve written). Post should ideally be no longer than 500 words, but we can see what happens.Write about how you became a writer/blogger. What you love about the craft. Something along those lines? xo
