Where did the week go? TB has been scrambling ever since returning from New Jersey and honestly, she could use four more days this week to get a handle on all the work that should definitely be done by now but isn’t. Miranda keeps laughing because TB keeps texting saying, “It’s Monday, right? I still have plenty of time this week to get everything done?” Does someone want to tell TB it’s Friday?

Aside from all the fun stuff you’ll find below, we have two exciting announcements.

Anne E. Terpstra Random 5 Graphic

5 Random Things is our way of helping readers to get to know top sapphic book authors all the while having a bit of fun.

Here are five random facts about Anne E. Terpstra.

1. In addition to being an author, I’m also a potter and photographer. I started throwing on the wheel about fifteen years ago, and photography has been part of my life since I was a teen. In fact, the cover of Beyond Any Experience features a photograph I took and then digitally altered. Most of my pottery consists of functional pieces in stoneware and porcelain, although I do decorative work as well. You can check out my online store here.

2. I’ve been a homeschooling parent for ten years. (There are more secular and LGBTQ+ homeschool families than you might think!) It’s been a rewarding and fun process, and my son will graduate from high school next year.

3. When I’m in a procrastinating mood, I’ll often bake – cakes, cookies, pastries, tarts – if it’s sweet, I’ll make it! A favorite cookbook is Flour by Joanne Chang.

4. One of my degrees is in journalism, and my original career goal was to be a sportswriter.

5. My other degree is in technical theater, which is what pulled me away from a journalism career. In my time as a stage manager and production manager, I watched a lot of actors rehearse and perfect their lines, which helped hone my ear for dialogue as a writer.

Beyond Any Experience, Anne’s debut novel, is available here, and you can sign up for her newsletter at her website.
