Hi, I’m working on a big thing



“Fallopian Rhapsody: The Story of the Lunachicks” will be published by Hachette Books on June 1, 2021. It’s a coming-of-age tale about a band of NYC teenagers who forged a sisterhood, found salvation, and fervently crashed the gates of punk rock during the ’90s, accidentally becoming feminist icons along the way. Stay tuned for more details.

Cyndi Lauper interview


Had the honor of a lifetime interviewing my idol, Cyndi Lauper, for Billboard’s Women in Music 2018 issue. One of my favorite quotes: [After] my first tour, all the big label honchos took me out to eat and said, “We’re going to make you the next Barbra Streisand.” I looked at them and said, “Could you find somebody else for that job? Because honestly, I really love rock’n’roll.” 

Neko Case interview




I’d been chasing Neko Case for years—literally—in order to interview her for Decibel magazine’s closet metalheads column. Finally, on Freddie Mercury’s birthday, we had a chance to speak. The column itself is not online; you have to get a copy of Issue #136 (February 2016) to read it. But the remnants of our conversation can be found on the blog. Check it out. Horns way the hell up.
