I am of the opinion that lesbian romance novels are the only books where a woman can go to find affirmation of her hopes, her dreams and her choices in life. They contain the evolving nature of our relationships, friendships and community.
For many women, even now, the only community they can safely find is in fiction written by lesbians and for lesbians. Depictions of real lesbian lives — or lives we hope some lesbians somewhere are leading — remind us that, even though we may not get it, we have a right to respect and happiness.
We deserve to live to see the end of the story.
That’s why I write what I do. And if all that sounds dreadfully serious, I also believe that laughter is probably the best thing in life. You can do it anywhere, any time and with anyone. And it feels good.
