My dispatch for Roads & Kingdoms from the Women's World Cup in Canada. This was a super assignment for a soccer fan, and I finally got to write about FIFA's "Blatter control problems." All around win. Read it here.
In April 2015, I sat down with Ellie Gordon-Moershel of the PrideHouseTO podcast to discuss sports, LGBTQ inclusion, writing, female footballers in Latin America, the boundaries of effective allyship, and Sochi 2014.
My essay, "Requiem," was included in A Family By Any Other Name, an anthology about queer relationships. Released in 2014 by TouchWood Editions, this book was well-received by audiences and critics but the blessing of my mother meant the most. This essay is about her. Read more.
Keph Senett is a masterful storyteller who delivers perfectly polished copy. An editor’s dream.

The interviews, the way you took me to the place with just a few words, almost made me cry… I remember those days when I used to be a player, a part of a team.

Just met Keph Senett. Just as funny and inappropriate in person. Awesome.

When Keph Senett writes, readers travel. Regardless of the subject matter. As a PR professional in the travel industry, I read—and write—stories on a regular basis. After a while, too many sound the same. This is where Keph differs. Her talent for observation and description surprises and beguiles. Her work stirs emotion and she clearly and concisely paints pictures. I find her style to be fresh and human and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone seeking authentic, interesting writing.

Keph Senett is a writer to watch.

The 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup has finally arrived! Over the next several weeks I will be watching and writing from Montreal and Moncton in Canada, and from Vienna in Austria.
The recent FIFA scandals (arrests, indictments, and Sepp Blatter's overdue resignation) have given everyone lots to talk about, including me. I was sufficiently prickly about the whole affair in this quote, in an article on CNN, and look forward to more analysis towards the end of the tournament.
