Check me out at Forever Young Adult!

At the end of 2012, I started reading Forever Young Adult (FYA), "a community for YA fans who are a little less 'Y' and a bit more 'A.'" FYA is a website run by the Alamo Drafthouse (only the best theaters in the nation), and "is a place where you can let your inner Lady Nerd loose and swoon over fictional characters without shame."


I loved the site from the start. I'm a huge fan of YA novels, and I felt an immediate affinity for the smart and snarky ladies (and gent) who write for the site. Very quickly, I knew that I had a new bucket list goal: to have a post published on the site.

A few weeks ago, I took a chance and emailed the site, asking about "intern" positions/offering my skills as a writer (who can occasionally be witty) for a guest post, were they ever to need it. I wasn't expect anything to happen, but was totally stoked when I was given the opportunity to write a couple of posts as a sort of interview.

Short story shorter: My first post—a scientific analysis of a Science Bros fan-made video—went up yesterday, with more to follow!

I'm super excited to be joining the team. As a writer on the site, I'll be reviewing YA novels and writing fun posts on a variety of other topics. If you're at all interested in YA books, a fan of snarky commentary, or miss the heydays of Lisa Frank—


—definitely check FYA out.
