As of September 2017, I am in my fifth year of blogging for all women, and lesbians in particular. Today, I have had over 380,000 visitors and this fulfills my dreams of bringing gay/lesbian world-wide news, articles/poems to inspire and to advertise my lesbian ebooks and children’s ebooks As you are probably aware all ebooks can be read on a variety of media devices (computer, laptop, iPhone, kindle, etc).
My lesbian ebooks are set in three countries and hopefully delve into lives that may be different.
I chose characters to represent an interesting world:
Jo is a mustering and ‘Jack-of-all trades on an isolated Australian cattle far. Jo falls in love and travels across the Outback with an Australian aboriginal woman. This allowed me to contrast the lives of a white woman and the world of an indigenous woman.
Lt. Dee: is a young army nurse in the Vietnam War. The story was sparked by a visit to the Washington Vietnam War Memorial Wall where over 55,000 soldiers (and nurses) died. I set this story in Vietnam in 1968 – the year of most casualties. How can a 21 year old Lt. Dee, who grew up on a Dutch Pennsylvania farm, deal with the horrors of war in a foreign country? Yet, Dee falls in love with a dashing Air Force Captain – a native American woman.
Jazz is a television carpenter with an appetite for women. It was a fantasy trip for me. What would life be like for a good looking woman, whose television fame brings sexy email and letter invitations? What would it be like to have an expensive car and a luxurious apartment? However, I decided that Jazz needed to fall in love with a challenging woman. This had to be a woman an equally famous and rich woman who would captivate Jazz and be elusive, sexy and extremely strong-willed.
I wrote these books to outline various themes: Jo: (The Australian Aboriginal Dream Time.)
Jazz: (1920s – Lesbian Women of Paris)
Lt. Dee: Love in a War Zone (
Sample chapters can be obtained on Amazon – Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple iBooks.

LESBIANS WHO ARE SINGLE, ENGAGED OR MARRIED
TWO LESBIANS THAT I ADMIRE
SALLY RIDE commanded a NASA space shuttle. I cannot image the courage it must take to blast off into space. And it takes immense knowledge and skills to be in charge of a shuttle launch and the bringing of a crew back to earth. Sally was in a 27 year relationship with Tammy O’Shaughnessy, a professor, who shared Sally’s love of science and space.
MARGARETHE CAMMERMEYER was the highest U.S.A military officer to come out gay is Margarethe Cammermeyer who was promoted to Colonel in 1987. She served for 14 months as Head of Nursing during the Vietnam War. She War. She was dismissed from the army for declaring her sexual orientation. A television movie, “Serving in Silence,” (starring Glenn Close) brought the issue to the public. Margarethe worked tirelessly against “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (a policy to keep military gays/lesbians silent. Thanks to Margarethe and others gays and lesbians can serve openly in the military. I personally am grateful for Margarethe taking the time to go over the manuscript of my lesbian ebook “Lt. Dee, Army Nurse: Vietnam). She made considerable comments and was incredibly generous with her time.
Below, are the faces of lesbians who were murdered because of their orientation. Their courage is an inspiration to us all. Their spirits remain with us.
