Liturgies for the Lonely: A series of liturgies designed to be practiced at home during key moments of the liturgical year.  Particularly written for those who are alone and without a church community during pandemic times.

queeringlent: A collection of 41 poems (one for each day of Lent and one for Easter) and one sermon written as part of a simple Lenten discipline: write one poem every day. An exploration of queerness and Christianity--and the queerness of Christianity. This collection contains references to transphobia, violence against trans people, mental illness, and suicide. Available on Amazon and Lulu.
