One in Every Crowd, Ivan''s eighth book with Arsenal Pulp Press, is her first specifically for queer youth.

Comprised of new stories and others culled from previous collections, One in Every Crowd is for anyone who has ever felt different or alone in their struggle to be true to themselves.

They are also the creator of four short films as well as three CDs that combine storytelling with ...
