Shamelessly stolen from Cindy Pon, a picture of our panel on the Female Gaze.
Me, Nalo Hopkinson, Malinda Lo and Kate Elliott.
Sirens is a wonderful convention, and I was struck dumb for whole minutes by meeting Nalo Hopkinson and Kate Elliott. (It’s a long time for me! Later I kidnapped Kate and made her take me to a waterfall. But out of love.)
This panel was amazing, with Malinda, Nalo and Kate all saying brilliant things and also really great contributions from the audience. And, I, uh, well.
I performed the Jacob Black cover of Adele’s Someone Like You.
‘I hate to come out of the woods uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away I couldn’t fight it
I hoped you’d see my abs and that you’d be reminded
That for me… it isn’t over…’
… Each… each to her own… I guess?
