“From the beginning of my writing career,
I just wanted to write about lesbian/gay life as I experienced
it. Like so many, I came from a place of great isolation. At the
same time, being gay filled me with great pride and joy. Writers
Jane Rule, Isabel Miller, Radclyffe Hall, Valerie Taylor, Ann
Bannon, and Vin Packer gave me inspiration and even the lesbian
companionship I needed as a baby dyke. More than anything, I want
to give to gay people what those writers gave me. And I want to
do it well enough that my words might someday be considered literature
and, as such, might endure because, as open as some societies
have become, there are always haters, and cycles of oppression.
Our writers strengthen us, offer a sense of solidarity and validation
that we are both more than our sexualities and are among the best
that humanity offers.”
