New JFB blog at Psychology Today: Stuck in the Middle with You

New JFB blog at Psychology Today: Stuck in the Middle with You
January 15, 2013 Jennifer Boylan

I have a new blog over at Psychology Today, about mothers, fathers, trans experience, family, and the mutability and morphability of life.  I’d be very grateful if fans of my work would check it out, as views of the blog over at PT will be seen by its editors as a vote of confidence in me, in “mainstreaming” trans issues, and of course, in my writing.  The blog is also, naturally enough, shining a light on STUCK IN THE MIDDLE WITH YOU, ramping up for publication from Crown/Random House this spring.

I really hope you enjoy the blog, and will keep up with it.  I’m going to try to write something every week.

UPDATE: January 22nd: the second blog in the series is here:

When I came out as transgender, my boys were six and four, back in 2000. For a while back then we weren’t as certain who we were anymore. The four of us, as familiar to one another as family members can be, suddenly found ourselves morphing into something new, something unrecognizable.

For my sons, it had meant going from…(click here to read the rest of the piece on the Psychology Today site.)
