Regardless of genre or profitability, my words touch lives; providing representation and affirmation, solace and comfort. People reach for my words the way they reach for red wine, chocolate, or their vibrator.
My words are a dreaming space. As we remake this cis hetero white ableist patriarchal world, my words help us imagine new and different ways of being in relation to the world and each other.
As grandmother Octavia E. Butler said, So be it, see to it!
So, let’s dream together.
