Hi there! My name is Star Williams. I'm non-binary and queer. And Duck, who is the true star of this blog, is a character who changed everything for my partner Jake (aka Other Duck) and I. You can read Duck's biography here or find out how Duck came to us in this Thrive article.
As for me, I'm a writer—both by profession and vocation. I've published everything from a queer romance novel with Harper Collins, to award-winning short stories and screenplays. (If you're interested in my writing, check out my other website.) Duck was born from a screenplay that Jake and I created for a series called "Ducking Awesome!" (It's even won a few awards, I'm happy to say!) He makes life so much brighter—especially during a pandemic/pondemic. His partner, Peacock Riley, is a celebrity in their own right, and Duck believes that they outshine him. But, like most of us who think we're less than we are, he couldn't be more wrong.
On this blog, Duck shares news from his bird community, as well as recommendations/reviews of great TV, films, charities, books, products, and more, that are diverse, inclusive, and have the power to make us laugh.
I learned, a long time ago, that laughter can get us through almost everything. It's important to chuckle, so let's do it with a duck!
