Author signed at Ylva Publishing. My motivation to write comes from the desire to build worlds that are somehow more (or less) than our own. I want to write stories where miracles are logical manifestations of the supernatural or divine and discover what it means to be human when humanity is no longer a given. What I want to add to the amazing body of literature already out there, both to the mainstream fiction written within the genres I am drawn to and lesbian fiction as a genre onto itself, are stories where women turn to women once they stop the apocalypse—be it a global or personal one.

Why I write, and why there are lesbians

When I was a child, my father read Asimov and Zelazny to me. As a teenager I gravitated toward writers like [China] Mieville, [Charles] Stross, and [Tad] Williams because they wrote the genres I loved—science fiction, (future) fantasy, dystopian, occult—without a romantic element. I didn't want to read jaw-dropping, gears-turning stories which were then "bogged down" by needless romance. I was... Read more of this blog post »
