“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.

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.”

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.
