Blog entry

When Heather invited me to be guest blogger, I didn’t hesitate. It’s so nice to see there are other people like me who are interested in the place lesbians took in history and in the strength and perseverance they had to maintain just to love another woman.

(Today's guest blog is from author Maya Chhabra (who was also one of my beta-readers for Mother of Souls) to celebrate release day for her little mermaid retelling, Walking on Knives.)

As a kid, I never liked the main character in Rumpelstiltskin, the girl who must spin straw into gold or die. The miller’s daughter agrees to hand over her first-born to the mysterious Rumpelstiltskin if he helps her accomplish this impossible task. Then she goes back on the deal.

Jennifer Linsky is a Twitter friend who graciously agreed to write a guest blog for me.

Note added 2017/04/30: Please see the additional information in the biography section below. This is not information I had available when this guest blog was posted.


Hello! My name is Jenny, and I’ve been invited by Heather to do a guest post this week. Since much of Heather’s blog content is about her great-great-grandfather’s civil war diary, I thought I would write a bit about my Ojii-kun, my grandfather, and an entirely different war: the war in the Pacific.  

When you read Stephanie Burgis's guest-post below, I think my regular readers will understand immediately why I'm delighted to have her as a guest, and why I think anyone who enjoys my writing will probably love hers as well. I haven't read her newest book Congress of Secrets yet, but I thoroughly enjoyed her previous work Masks and Shadows (see review) and gave it one of my highest accolades: passing the "treadmill test" with flying colors!
