Meet the Author

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 newest novel, Beggar of Love, will be available this fall from Bold Strokes Books. Her recent short stories can be found in Romantic Interludes (Bold Strokes Books) and in Read These Lips, at www.readtheselips.com. She has twice been nominated for Lambda Literary Awards and her novel Sweet Creek (Bold Strokes Books) was a GCLS award finalist. Her reviews and feature articles appeared in “The Lambda Book Report” and many other publications.

Lynch’s syndicated column, “The Amazon Trail,” runs in venues such as boldstrokesbooks.com, justaboutwrite.com, and camprehoboth.com. She is a recipient of the Alice B. Reader Award for Lesbian Fiction, the James Duggins Mid-Career Author Award, which honors LGBT mid-career novelists of extraordinary talent and service to the LGBT community, and was inducted into the Saints and Sinners Literary Hall of Fame.
