My latest piece, "End funding disparity for mental, physical illnesses" was published in the San Francisco Chronicle two weeks ago -- their cover story for the Sunday INSIGHT section. Here's the link. http://tinyurl.com/lxdxpql / The subject matter is complicated, but important to understand, especially in light of our nation's move to the Affordable Care Act.

The question we must ask ourselves: Would we accept this situation if it were happening to our loved ones with heart disease or diabetes? I think the answer would have to be a resounding "no." -- AY

My new essay “A Damn Fine Female Body Part” has been published here at The Doctor TJ Eckleburg Review. For just a few minutes of your time, you get to learn my strong opinion of certain curse words and good vs. bad sexual objectification, as well as enjoy a small case study on my personal objectification of the actor Norman Reedus aka Daryl Dixon on “The Walking Dead.” This essay is part of the ongoing Cunt Reclamation Project.

I'm thrilled to announce that my new merman romance Siren Song is now available from Satin Romance:

Unceremoniously dumped by her longtime boyfriend in the middle of Port Emerald Beach, Jasmin takes comfort in the sound of a beautiful siren's song that flows free from the waters before her. She hears the echo of this beautiful song in the music of Dane; a sultry, gorgeous nightclub singer whose show is entrancing and seducing the ladies of her Florida hometown. Chemistry ignites when this practical, plus-sized entertainment reporter meets the seductive, instantly smitten Dane; yet when Jasmin learns Dane's mysterious secret, can she still dare herself to love and trust again?

http://www.amazon.com/Siren-Song-Megan-Hussey-ebook/dp/B00MH75LFI/ref=sr_1_2?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1407622493&sr=1-2&keywords=siren+song

Enjoy!

Best,

Megan

The PBS documentary "The Amish: Shunned" that aired on American Experience in February has been nominated for an Emmy Award for "exceptional merit in documentary filmmaking." The American Experience film "JFK" has also been nominated for an Emmy.

I was very honored to take part in both "The Amish" and "The Amish: Shunned." I was especially happy to be part of the second film because by then I was well acquainted with Callie Wiser of Five O' Clock Films and I knew that she would portray my culture and people as they are, without embellishing or sensationalizing our stories. She was able to convey the nuances and the complexities of what it means to live or leave an Amish life. It was a real pleasure to work with her.

You can watch "profiles" of each of the people who were interviewed for the "The Amish: Shunned." If you follow the link, you will see the various links on the left hand side of the page. To watch the whole documentary in sequence, you need to buy the a copy of the film or wait until it airs again.

Please share this post freely all over the internet, giving Callie Wiser and Mark Samels, the Executive Producer of American Experience our support for their outstanding work.

I am the author of two memoirs, Why I Left the Amish and Bonnet Strings: An Amish Woman's Ties to Two Worlds. I am currently writing a third book, "A Letter to My Amish Mother."
