Lee Lynch has been writing about lesbian life and lesbians from the time she came out, almost 50 years ago. She was first published in “The Ladder” in the 1960s. In 1983 Naiad Press published her first books, including Toothpick House and Old Dyke Tales. Her novel The Swashbuckler was presented in NYC as a play scripted by Sarah Schulman. Lynch’s play “Getting Into Life” caused consternation when performed in Tucson, AZ , due to its realistic portrayal of lesbians. Her recent short stories can be found in Romantic Interludes (Bold Strokes Books) and in Read These Lips. She has twice been nominated for Lambda Literary Awards and her novel Sweet Creek (Bold Strokes Books) a GCLS award finalist. Her reviews and feature articles appeared in “The Lambda Book Report” and many other publications.
She is a recipient of the Alice B. Reader Award for Lesbian Fiction and was been inducted into the Saints and Sinners Literary Hall of Fame.
