Autobiography.

I’m writing my autobiography. My life (so far) has included many adventures, and I think it would make a good read even if I weren’t also transgender.

Everyone looks happy on Decatur Square.

Everyone looks happy on Decatur Square.

But I am also transgender, and that fact has given me much more to write about. Like so many other people with gender dysphoria, I lost my job over it. I was able to fight back, and I won a groundbreaking federal lawsuit—in the Deep South, no less—against the man who fired me. During the long years of that experience, I became the first transgender person to testify before a Congressional committee. This book (tentatively titled Unsafe At Any Speed, but something tells me that title may not be available) is about all of that, plus much more.

As I write, I post excerpts to my blog. Links to these excerpts are gathered below for “one-stop shopping”; if you bookmark this page, it will always be up to date, so you won’t have to search through my blog for them. I don’t write in chronological order, but that’s how the excerpts are organized.

I’m a freelance writer and editor, but I’d love to be able to work on this book full time. Please help me do this with a monetary contribution! I can accept Paypal funds here:


And Patreon funds here:

Additional fundraising channels will be added later. I’m brainstorming possible rewards, such as bonus content or minion ID cards or coffee mugs (who doesn’t like coffee mugs?), that I can offer if you send me money. Suggestions are welcome! What sort of bennies would you like to get in exchange for helping out?

If you are an agent or publisher, or if you know one who may be interested in this book, please contact me!

In any event, thank you for your interest, and for reading this far. I appreciate it!
