Finger-banging: free from Plenitude Magazine

Do you ever wish you could know me a little better? Do you ever think to yourself, “You know, Sierra could over-share a bit MORE than she already does”?

Well, you are in luck, friends!

Plenitude Magazine, the best queer literary magazine in all of Canada (and, quite possibly, in the whole world), has posted my short memoir “Spare Change” from Issue 2 on their website. It has such classic Sierra lines as:

“Wait, wait, I thought you were straight!”

“Now I am a fish taco.”

“So, if you two ever break up, you wanna fuck?”

It is also packed with such gems of wisdom as:

“It doesn’t count. It’s clear.”

“I am done with vaginosis.”

“When you’re out late, there is never a good place to shit.”

So for today’s daily dose of exploding heads, Nazi fights, and finger-banging, I hope you’ll check out my memoir “Spare Change.”

Alphabet Soup Interview

Hey Everybody,

It’s been a long and wild and weird summer, but I wanted to finally post my first radio interview for your listening “pleasure.”

Laura Trethewey and Matthew Walsh interviewed me on CiTR 101.9 FM‘s Alphabet Soup radio show on June 11, 2014. I felt like the interview went really well, considering I have a face for radio, but a voice for silent film. Also considering that I invented a brand new pronunciation of the word “scarce!”  Catch it at about the 17 minute mark.

Take a listen, but be warned: there are swears and sex talk ahead. The interview starts at 6:08 minutes in.
