Magicians Crossdressers and My Uterus Book Cover Christina Howell

Magicians, Cross Dressers, and My Uterus

A Memoir

Magicians, Cross-Dressers and My Uterus is a comedic story of optimism quickly replaced by bewilderment and disbelief at the array of strange dates balanced against a 12 year marriage. Disappointment morphs into amusement as one strange story after another unfolds and eventually force her to question the one thing that all of these stories have in common, herself.


My Uterus is Fine, Thanks for Asking

Is procreation and expanding the gene pool still the end-all be-all of human existence? Though more and more people choose not to have children, the assumption remains that the goal in this game of life is to get married and have children. Of course, this is especially true for women. This essay will resonate with anyone who is tired of hearing about biological clocks or of others telling them what they should do with their bodies.


True Love, Fairytales, and George R.R. Martin

In this witty and introspective essay, Christina explores her conflicting views on love and relationships. She grapples with the desire for a fairy tale romance while resisting the idea of settling for less. As she contemplates the trade-offs between singlehood and love, Christina confronts the question of whether the risk of love is worth the potential reward, or whether it is more like a fairytale written by George R.R. Martin.

This anthology contains eight of my 100-word stories. This has been such a fun project. This volume collects 100 of the best stories from the first year of the Creative Questers100wordproject, which encourages its members to write a new story each month on a specific theme.


Gathering: A Women Who Submit Anthology

I am honored to have one of my stories appear in this anthology. GATHERING is a collection of poems, essays, stories, and plays by Women Who Submit (WWS) members from New York, New Jersey, Chicago, San Antonio, Bay Area, Long Beach, Westside, and Los Angeles chapters. It is a way for members in our literary community to acknowledge the traumas of the past year and offer hope in the face of unprecedented challenges. In spite of all that has plagued the world in 2020-2021, WWS members continued to gather across the country, share resources, encourage literary submissions, and support each other with claps and cheers. This gathering of literary voices celebrates WWS’s commitment to empowering women and nonbinary writers over the last 10 years.
