A monster. Sometimes. I’m also a reader, writer, and observer, a lover of strange and impossible things, a feminist, and a pop culture nerd. I lived most of my life in a small Mississippi town, and I have a master’s degree in literature. Currently, I live in New Orleans with my husband Sam, who is an independent filmmaker; my son, a precocious seven year old who I refer to on the blog as Little Jedi; and our rescue pup, a rambunctious terrier aptly called Tank.
And I mostly blog about…
Part-Time Monster is a space where I blog about feminism, sexuality, motherhood, life as a liberal in the conservative American South, and living with mental illness. My writing also focuses on pop culture and literature while maintaining a strong focus on girls and women.
In 2013, when I was a graduate student knee-deep in a vat of coffee and surrounded by a mountain of books, I launched Part-Time Monster 1.0 as a collaborative space to talk about books, girls, and monsters. I was lucky enough to have many wonderful friends and colleagues whose writing was featured there and to have a post freshly pressed.
