I'm a YA author of Caught Between Two Curses and an MG author of Finding My Place. I love strong female characters and the book Half the Sky. I also love baseball, eating out, Boxer dogs, reading, being a mom, strong girls and women, inspiring quotes and funny TV shows. I don't like exercise that seems like exercise.

If you’re looking for a way to do something for the people and community of Ferguson, perhaps write a check to their library.
The address is to the library, this information is from their director, and they don’t have a way to accept anything other than a check at the moment.
Anonymous said: Who are you getting your Ferguson information from? I'm having problems verifying what's actually happening!
That’s actually what’s taking me so long to update some of my posts; not only is the information surfacing slowly about his case specifically, but I make sure to cross reference at least three sources because some people are just blatantly lying to stir shit up.
Also live feeds keep going down and new ones pop back up but I know some of you are sensitive to video, so
Here’s a list of some twitter handles:
Journalists (All of these are either on the ground in Ferguson as I type this or actively covering events in Ferguson, both Brown’s case and the rallies):
- Amanda M Sakuma
- Kerry Picket
- Lisa Brown
- Alice Speri
- Tim Pool
- Claire Ward
Instagram Accounts: (TW: Some of these accounts feature graphic video or images of Ferguson events)
as I can go through my twitter and instagram accounts.
Any familiarity with reliable/accurate Tumblr sources? i.e. people who either fact check carefully or who link to others who do?
Hi! yes of course; Here’s a list of people I’ve seen being reblogged from from Tumblr that seem to have pretty reliable info:
- The People’s Record
- Female Villian
- The Political Freakshow
- Pax Americana
- Im Not Havin’ It
- Securely Insecure
- Olitz Me
- Narcileptic Narcissus
- I Write About Feminism
- Optical Dispersion
I’m sure I forgot a bunch but here’s a start. Some of it is compilations from a bunch of sources, some is original content. Disclaimer: I’m not vouching for any other content on any of these blogs/twitters/instagrams or any that may be posted after this list but as of right now, the information regarding Ferguson and discussions taking place about the rallies/police and Mike Brown’s death seems accurate.
if you want to be included on any of these lists, shoot me a message with your web-address and I’ll check it out
