Lambda Literary and James Beard Awards and she was recently
tapped to introduce famed hints columnist Heloise for the Mark
Twain House in Hartford. In 2005 she released her first book,
Brini Maxwell’s Guide to Gracious Living. Since then, she
has had a very successful series of podcasts in conjunction with
NPR, and a popular web video series which can be found at
Brini.TV. She is currently writing and testing recipes for a cheese
cookbook.

Brini has just been ordained to perform weddings and married
her first couple in April of 2013. She stays busy making personal
appearances around the country for venues including the Denver
Public Library and The Provincetown Film Festival and designing
soft good accessories for the home including pillows and tabletop
