I wrote three novels during the 20th century. The first one I destroyed. The second one I archived. The third one I misplaced. In the 21st century I dug my second novel out of my archives and published it under the title 'The Quality of Her Voice'.
I also wrote, back in the twentiest century, a few short stories that got published under various names in zines and magazines at the time. I recently gathered most of them into one volume: 'Dreams of 1990'.
I am currently writing another lesbian romance.

A brand new novel inspired by my love of libraries that should feature some poetry, and gathering together short stories I actually didn't write in the 80's, but in 1990 (since it was almost just before I moved from one country to another, in a way it was still the 80's for me as I was waiting for my new start in life).(less)

That year I also wrote half another novel (finished the following year, but still unpublished), along with quite a few short stories. Being so intensely involved with writing helped me to survive an otherwise depressing year. My stories are generally inspired by details in life.(less)

J.E.J. Fern liked an answer from Jessica O'Toole:

On entering the room I saw it - the spider had crawled onto the pillow again, surrounded by carcasses of its wide-ranging kills like its own little snack bar.

'Oh, crap,' it said, as it chowed down on a dessicated bumbebee. 'I thought you were out.... See Jessica’s answer.

“Even the rats carry bike chains as essential defence accessories.”
Manda Scott, Hen's Teeth

“Gay kids aren’t a “plot point” that you can play with. Gay kids are real, actual kids, teenagers, growing up into awesome adults, and they don’t have the books they need to reflect that. Growing up, my nose was constantly stuck in a book. Growing up as a lesbian, I was told over and over and over by the lack of gayness in said books that I did not exist. That I wasn’t important enough to tell stories about. That I was invisible. Why are we telling our kids this? Why are we telling them that they’re a minority, and they don’t deserve the same rights as straights, that they’re going to grow up in a world that despises them, that the intolerance of humanity will never change, that they’re worthless. It’s not true.”
Sarah Diemer

“And so we all wander around looking for the song our soul wants to sing.”
Robbi McCoy, Songs Without Words

“rain slowly slides down the glass as if the night is crying.”
Patricia Cornwell, Trace

“You write your first novel with the desperation of the damned. You're afraid that you'll never write anything else, ever again.”
