Op-ed: Rethinking the Shame Game

Op-ed: Rethinking the Shame Game

This past Wednesday, The Advocate ran an op-ed I wrote regarding the inherent flaws in the concept of LGBT people slinging back hate and shame at those who do the same to them. While The Advocate added an incredibly misleading subtitle about “turning the other cheek” (not something that I ever intended, because that implies passive acceptance of poor treatment rather than productive and peaceful challenging of it), the experience was quite interesting. Angry and hurt people who were supposedly part of my community tried to tear me to shreds in a way that illustrated the very point I was making, and people who said they agreed with my position told me they were nervous to share the article, because they didn’t want the negative comments to make them appear homophobic.

I will definitely have more to say on this matter, but for now, here is a link to the article and the comments! Take from it what you will.

The Confessions of Jonathan Flite: FREE 50-Page Preview!

The Confessions of Jonathan Flite: FREE 50-Page Preview!

I’m thrilled to share with you the first preview of my upcoming novel, The Confessions of Jonathan Flite! It’s the first in an explosive new YA/Adult crossover series that deals with the global clash—and eventual meeting—of science and spirituality. The story, set against a nuclear terrorist attack in Geneva, Switzerland, follows a Rhode Island juvenile delinquent named Jonathan Flite, who is born in 2020 with memories of seven teenagers who vanished mysteriously halfway across the country, ten years before his birth.

I’ve been working on this series for over a decade, and I’m thrilled to release this first preview exclusively on my website. Keep an eye out for the full book, coming summer of 2014!
