“What books do you recommend?”

“Who are your favorite authors/ who do you want to write like?”

  • Faves: Robert A. Heinlein, Orson Scott Card, and Scott Westerfeld.
    Write like: Orson Scott Card.

“Ms. Britt, are you a boy or a girl?”

  • I am a human! And for now that is all you need to know. Your parents will discuss this with you someday.

“What are your pronouns?”

  • I’d prefer to be called a “person” over a “woman,” “dude” instead of “ma’am,” and the like.
    If you must pronoun me, I’ll take she/her/hers, to avoid confusion.
    But don’t correct anybody that calls me “he” –  I take it as a compliment that they see me that way.
