This is A.C.! She’s an unofficial member of geekdom and loves board games, tabletop games, video games, mind games… just kidding. Or are we? A.C. has written a novel and a half and is hoping to be published this year, as the habit of writing is growing harder to shake. She lives in Interlaken, which is in rural upstate New York. Her heroes are Captain Kathryn Janeway and her cat, Fiddle.
Reviews by A.C. O'Dell:
There are a lot of people in my life who won’t give me the permission I crave to forge my own way. That’s why Sarah Knight exists.
I’m excited. This is a comic for us. For today. Everything has changed; the digital delivery, the type of story, and especially the style.
An unusual phenomenon is occurring in Afghanistan – the daughters of sonless Afghan families are dressing as boys.
Do you miss Michelle Obama? I know I want more Michelle. This is an insightful look at our former first lady throughout her term.
I was totally wooed by Roth’s voice and world-building. The adventure wove itself around me and I was surprised by the turns but wasn’t satisfied by the ending.
Imagine a world where everything is streamed live online. Even you. In this near-future tale, privacy is theft.
The Modern Trainwreck. We hate to love them. We vilify them while alive but celebrate them when they’re dead.
It’s the mystery of birth explored by a young eye in the 1950s. These are stories of patients too canny to be works of fiction, belly laughs and knuckle-biting.
Director Debra Granik takes a heartbreaking yet hopeful look at the stark world of low-income families settled in the Ozarks of America.
The delineation between slave and free, noble and servile, male and female, hit me hard, and I became angry.
A reminder that it’s possible to look my own demons in the face, tell them a joke, and get on with my life.
When Pulitzer-prize winning writer and food critic Jonathan Gold introduces us to a watermelon salad with Thai feta, chili, and lemongrass, I literally moaned.
The story accessed that dirty, thrill-seeking part of my psyche that enjoys horror and family gossip (often the same thing, right?)
After reading Negroland: A Memoir, I am starting to believe that privilege has less to do with who I am and what I have, and more to do with how people treat me.
Maggie’s Plan has relatable content, but not relevant issues. Something that won’t really offend, but is also too spicy to be attributed to Nora Ephron.
If there’s anything I need as a writer, it’s grace, and The Artist’s Way keeps on forgiving, suggesting, granting permission, and inspiring.
She writes at length about the frustration she felt as a female author in the 1960s. Her manuscript for Wrinkle in Time was rejected some thirty times.
