Anna wants to solve your relationship dilemmas. She wants you to have toe-curling, insecurity-free sex and to learn how to talk to anyone, even if you’re shy and awkward. She writes about this stuff here on her blog, as well as in weekly advice columns for The Chicago Tribune’s RedEye and AfterEllen. She has been described as “being the kind of honest which is neither false nor abrasive” and “the Kanye West of lesbian writers,” which she is pretty sure is a compliment.
She has an MFA in Life Mistakes.
You can email her here, unless you’re the guy who keeps asking “are you lezbian girl,” because they are now married, obviously.
Oh you want, like, a real bio? Okay.
Her debut book, The Lesbian Sex Haiku Book (with Cats!) came out in April 2016 through Flatiron Books.
Hailing from the rough-and-tumble deserts of southern Arizona, where one doesn’t have to bother with such trivialities as “coats” or “daylight saving time,” Anna is a freelance writer living in Oakland. She has been the Managing Editor of the East Bay Express, the Arts and Culture Editor at SF Weekly, the Social Media and Communications Fellow at Mother Jones, and has written about everything from bars and restaurants to news to theater to sex toys, in addition to writing several different sex and relationship columns.
Her work can also be found in New York magazine, The Toast, San Francisco magazine (“The Oakland Issue” won a National Magazine Award), BuzzFeed, Fusion, AlterNet, The Bay Citizen, Salon, The Daily Dot, and The Rumpus.
Plus, one time Amanda Palmer asked her out on Twitter, with Neil Gaiman’s blessing.
