While I am very confident we will be lucky enough to have the amazing AMBER BENSON back to Challengers for a signing of this very book, you can totally pre-order it now if you don’t want to take any chances of missing out. 

Boy, I bet Amber can’t wait to come back to Chicago… in January…


My new book, THE WITCHES OF ECHO PARK, is available for pre-order through these establishments:

Murder By The Book


Mysterious Galaxy


It comes out January 6 - which is 2 days before my 38th birthday! Wanna get me a great birthday treat? Pre-order the book! :)

I guess I should expect this… This is what we get for having crayons for kids to use so close to the couch. *sigh* (at Challengers Comics)

» 23 Female Cartoonists On Drawing Their Bodies

We couldn’t admire Lucy Knisley more. This is a wonderful post with art and quotes from 23 amazing, talented creators.


“We need women’s bodies in our stories, having sex and getting our periods and eating food and doing whatever bodies do, so that the things our bodies do are normalized and present — so that boys don’t grow up thinking women are gross or whores or pigs or any other horrible epithet.” —Lucy Knisley

Some ladies said some really fascinating things about presenting female bodies in comics! I am so proud to be among these artists.
