Jennifer Linsky was born in Japan, but quickly whisked away to Southern Arizona. She grew up among saguaro cactus and jumping cholla, and ran away to sea at the age of nineteen.

In the years since, she attended Northern Arizona University's School of Nursing, which led, bizarrely enough, to becoming a nurse. Now medically retired, Jenny lives in the American South with her mother and two gray cats.

Jenny writes when she must, reads when she can, and watches entirely too much Anime.

(As a reader, I average four stars per review. That doesn't mean I'm indiscriminate; it means I'm good at picking out books I'm likely to enjoy).

Annie and Liza, from Nancy Garden's Annie on my Mind.

They were the first fictional F/F couple I read, and their relationship, and the fact that the book has a hopeful ending, literally saved my life. It led me to understand things about myself that I had thought were broken, crazy, bad, and sinful were actually relatively normal, and beautiful.(less)

Couldn't be more full of played out, hackneyed, and yes, offensive tropes if the author deliberately tried. Not a book to be set aside lightly -- it should be hurled across the room as forcefully as possible, and if it happens to land in the fireplac ...more

“I like who I am when I'm with her. And I hope that she feels the same way. If she doesn't, we shouldn't be together, no matter how I feel about it.”
Jennifer Linsky, Flowers of Luna

“Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind.”
Kurt Vonnegut

“When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

“Writing, it was like a heavenly balm, it was like the flowing out of deep waters, it was like the lifting of a load from the spirit; it brought with it a sense of relief, of assuagement. One could say things in writing without feeling self-conscious, without feeling shy and ashamed and foolish -- one could even write of the days of young Nelson, smiling a very little as one did so.”
Radclyffe Hall, The Well of Loneliness

“Do you hate people?”

“I don't hate them...I just feel better when they're not around.”
Charles Bukowski, Barfly

“My dear, don't be foolish, there's nothing strange about you, someday you may meet a man you can love. And supposing you don't, well, what of it, Stephen? Marriage isn't the only career for a woman.”
Radclyffe Hall, The Well of Loneliness
