The Lizard Queen is a worker bee (not to mention once and future English instructor) with more interests than time. She grew up in California, lived in New England for a while, followed by New Mexico, and currently calls Kansas home. She shares her realm with two dogs, two cats, a robot who may or may not be evil, and a ridiculous number of books.

    You have left an intersting trail on the internet that would absolutely take someone that knows you to track you down; It has been a fun and interesting journey getting to this page.

    I just wanted to find a valid email for you so as I can comment back on some of your fanfic. The two that I had found came back permanent failures.

    Hi Lizard Queen,

    I am glad that I discovered your blog!

    I thought you and your readers would be interested to know about a new online collection of research on LGBTQ youth. The research is all nongovernmental, nonprofit, and touches on important topics such as how to build safe school environments for LGBTQ youth; homelessness; how racism and homophobia impact lgbtq kids of color; and suicidal ideation and attempts. The collection includes work from organizations like GLSEN, Advocates for Youth, and the Sexual Minority Youth Assistance League.

    You can check out the full collection at http://www.issuelab.org/closeup

    Hope you find it useful!

    Dear “Lizard Queen”,
    I saw your story about Pedro Guzman and thought you should know about another recent apalling story about deportation of a mentally-ill person. On Jan. 23, a mentally-ill Indian-American man whose case was still pending was deported to India and is now missing. The man, Harvey Sachdev, suffered from schizophrenia and had lived in the U.S. for 40 years. He is the father, brother and husband of U.S. citizens and has no family back in India. The family is desperately trying to find out what happened to him but to no avail. You can find out more from Dimple Rana at Detention Diaspora. Her email is dimple.scorpio@gmail.com. Thanks for bringing attention to these injustices and keep up the good work. FYI, we have a petition asking President Obama to stop current immigration enforcement practices until a comprehensive review can be conducted to ensure that human rights and due process are protected. It is available at http://www.rightsworkinggroup.org/?q=DHSPetition. Thanks!

    Is this Patricia Kennealy-Morrison?

  14. That’s not my name.

    Furthermore, a note to all who may be interested: I blog pseudonymously for a reason. Any further comments trying to guess who I am in the offline world will be deleted.

    Lol, no need to get narky. Just having a bit of fun. As long as your real live persona promotes the same ethics then you are cool with me. Peace.

    thanks for printing Litvinoff’s poem to Eliot. No grace bestows this ignorance, wish-entrenched, part trance self-induced, part hate-spun chance without excuse. Pure rebuke is the soul’s best cure.
