Happy Birthday, Mom

Today is my mother’s birthday. Her name was Marjorie Bradford and she would have been 64. I dream about her still and miss her every day. I wrote Elan Vital for her. It’s been ten years and I still cry thinking about her. Like I am now.

divider with ancient egyptian scarab I'm writing an Afrofuturist novel set in a matriarchal ancient Egypt where queer women of color rule the sand and sky. Want to know more? Read about it here. Want to help make it happen? Become my patron (& get free fiction)!

  1. My condolences. That’s so young.

    My dad’s birthday would have been last Sunday. My deepest sympathies on your loss.

  2. Hearts hearts hearts hearts to you. “Elan Vital” is one of the very best short stories I’ve ever read and I recommended it to someone who also lost their mother the other day … with the caveat that it would probably make them cry. :( I’m sorry.

  3. So sorry for your loss. I can only imagine that your mother was a completely awesome person, judging by her daughter.

    I lost my mom when I was 12, so this resonates with me very strongly.
