That sounds sort of silly, maybe, but it’s as accurate a piece of my process as I can explain it. How do your Montana roots impact your queer identity? We’ve only been here for a year and a half but both my wife and I are completely in love with Providence. I’ve always been really drawn to New England, for whatever reason (too many John Updike/John Irving novels…) and if we don’t live here forever, for always, it will likely still be somewhere coastal (the Pacific Northwest is very nice, too.) But, despite that, I think I’ll always consider myself a Montanan.
All of my most formative years were spent there, and the whole of my immediate family still lives there—which means I’m back in MT at least once a year, often more than that.
And I long for it, I do, when I’m away for too long—that landscapes works itself into your very being, I’m telling you, it haunts you until you return and get your fix.
I wrote a little about this awhile ago, at least how growing up in Miles City affected me as a queer writer.
We’ve never just “fit right in,” and that experience of being slightly apart makes a person really develop into a brilliant, complicated thing.
So it is with great lovely excitement that I present to you this fantastic and totally epic Cameron Post Post, which contains answers to questions.
Mostly it’s just honoring your characters, in this case, my main character, and trying to present her as wholly as possible, not to pander to a certain ideal of type, or to use her as a puppet serving my plot, but to attempt to honor Cam’s humanity on the page.
That’s how I felt reading the book too, except backwards — it was I thought of when I read this book, not me.
If I was in this book, I wouldn’t be Cameron, I’d be Lindsey Lloyd (although that would’ve required substantially more confidence and self-awareness than I actually possessed as a teenager).
The California-born cricketer composed his maiden first-class hundred this season when he scored 128 against Northamptonshire at the Riverside Stadium.
The 21-year-old made his first-class debut for Durham MCCU against Derbyshire in April 2014. "He's demonstrated real talent this year and contributed well in both the red and white-ball format," Durham head coach Jon Lewis said.
