My Books

I write a mix of historical and contemporary f/f romance and general fiction. All my novels are about strong female characters who have their mettle tested by love and life and have the chance to evolve in the stories I tell about them.  I love history and politics and LGBTQ culture and all the ways those intersect.


When I first started reading lesbian fiction, i was disturbed by the lack of cultural context for the love stories so I decided my writing would be different. One of my writer friends says when you read one of my books, you're going to learn something. That's a great compliment.
