I wasn’t sure where to start in sharing my writing and publishing stories on this blog but today, being the first of October, I woke up and crunched the numbers for my first month of book sales for Girls I’ve Run Away With and I thought these calculations might interest some people. I’ve gotten a few messages lately from folks interested in self-publishing their novels, the way I just did (while also getting the ball rolling on...

About Soda


Posted By on Nov 12, 2012

From The CreamsickleSoda.The City had named her. Some girl she’d kissed at a party her first week in town had mumbled, Mmmm you taste like grape soda, and then called her that the rest of the night. The nickname stuck to her like gum on the bottom of a shoe. She didn’t mind. She had needed a new name. She had needed a new life. That was why she had run away from that small Midwest town in the first place.Soda was the ultimate...

About Lo Flynn


Posted By on Nov 12, 2012

An excerpt from the sequel to Girls I’ve Run Away With.  The first time I blinked and the world got weird I was at this house party with my girlfriend Ramona Ashdon and I’d just snorted a fat line of cocaine and the next thing you know I was flopping around on some girl’s bathroom floor like a pale little fish.

Posted By on Nov 11, 2012

An excerpt from: Girls I’ve Run Away With.  (A book about a 15yr old skater girl named Lo.) I heard she glued her eyelashes together. That was when I really started listening. People at school would talk about her, like the girls with the scrunched hair like crispy noodles who sat in front of me in second period English. I liked the way her name rolled off their tongues.  Savannah Blanco.  When I heard that name I would listen....

On The Road


Posted By on Oct 3, 2009

On the road once again with Sister Spit, this time it’s the US and a few Canada stops. I need to blog more, there are so many tour stories! Right now we are in Prescott, Arizona. I love college shows because college students actually buy tons of merch. That’s my food cash for the next day, people. We had this big discussion in the van yesterday about how people just don’t believe they should have to pay for art and...

Love this GoodReads Review


Posted By on Aug 27, 2009

A fellow writer Faith Reidenbach wrote it. She gave the book such a caring, intelligent read. She also told me this story: “Today I was having my regular morning walk with my 69-year-old neighbor (a married straight lady who grew up in Kansas), and out of the blue she said, “I’d like you to loan me that Creamsickle book.” I hemmed and hawed and said, “You know, it’s pretty graphic, Mary Ann.”...
