Greetings yet again, and welcome to another installment of Trans Book Club!

Greetings, friends. In the interest of posting some actual content on this blog, I thought it might be fun to start going through the multitude of trans-related books I have in my possession and saying a thing or two about them. Most of the trans books I’ve read over the last year or so have been memoir, but today we’re going to be delving into one of the few fiction offerings I’ve sampled: a wild and wonderful trans reimagining of Peter Pan called Peter Darling.Continue reading “Trans Book Club: Peter Darling”
A few months ago over spring break, my roommate went out of town on vacation and I found myself with the apartment to myself (and no classes to teach) for a solid week. I used this time to start work on a story I’ve been wanting to tell for a long time: Namely, a trans guy coming out and learning to live life as himself.

The idea hit me while I was in the shower, as many (sometimes questionable) ideas do, and I’ve been having … Continue reading Books, books, books!

For any interested parties, you can read a review of my book, Following Grandpa Jess, over at Rainbow Reviews: http://www.rainbowbookreviews.com/book-reviews/following-grandpa-jess-by-tj-baer-at-bold-strokes-books A quote from the review, which was written by Lena Grey: “A big part of the appeal of this book is its down-to-earth approach to family life.
