Thank you to Jennifer Chen for this wonderfully thoughtful interview over at Brit + Co. I tackle one of the questions I actively avoided in Life Lessons Harry Potter Taught Me: what the series taught me about love. I also discuss what I love about Luna Lovegood (spoiler: everything).
Ahead of my second visit to Anita Skeen's Harry Potter class at my alma mater, Bill Castanier interviewed me over at the Lansing City Pulse. I also got a chance to talk a bit about my thoughts about the sexual abuse that occurred at MSU. Check it out!
I'm taking this Patronus of mine out on the road this spring! Hop on your brooms or thestrals and come chat Snape or Hermione with me. More dates/times will be added soon.
Carrie Dudewicz interviewed me over at the wonderful Midwestern Gothic. I talk about growing up in the Midwest and the books I loved as a kid, my history with Harry Potter, and my writing processes and inspiration.
Life Lessons Harry Potter Taught Me is now available! Use the hashtag #lifelessonshptaughtme when you see the book in the wild, or to post your own pretty faces or insights. I can't wait for you to read it. Be sure to leave a review on Goodreads and/or Amazon and let me know what you think!

I had the great fun of being interviewed on TVO's The Agenda with Steve Paikin as a part of their coverage of the 20-year anniversary of Harry Potter. Watch to see me chat Hogwarts Houses, favorite quotes, and the legacy of Harry Potter with some other amazing panelists.
