Welcome to Episode 19 of The Lesbian Book Club, and this one is a personal favourite of mine where I get to interview US lesfic writer Georgia Beers who needs no introduction whatsoever! Georgia has written a slew of best-selling lesbian romances (16 and counting), including most recently Rescued Heart, A Little Bit Of Spice and Zero Visibility. Georgia was also the first lesbian romance author I came across and was the inspiration for me giving writing a go, so you can blame her ;p In the interview, she reveals the inspiration behind some of her best-loved books and characters, as well as telling us about her writing process and how she tried but failed to develop a love of beer.
As well as chatting wiht one of my favourite authors (eek!), I also give a run-down of the Amazon lesbian fiction charts for the US and UK, as well as sharing what I’ve been up to, including the release of my All I Want series boxset, along with my new book, Nothing To Lose, due out in June.

Welcome to Episode 16 of The Lesbian Book Club! We’re already nearly a month down in 2016 already (scary!), so I thought I’d take the time to speak to the fabulous UK lesbian crime author Cari Hunter of No Good Reason and the Cold To The Touch fame. I read both of these in preparation for the interview, and I can tell you they’re excellent books, packed with cracking dialogue, realism and no little charm. Cari talks about her writing process, how she’s an accidental novelist and also the key question: what is her favourite biscuit? Find out all this & more in our fantastic chat!

Susan talks about her writing process, how she went from writing Xena fanfic to being the prolific author she is, and the amazing longevity of the San Francisco series – she’s just finished the 20th book in the series, with another six to go!
I also do a run-down of the Amazon lesbian fiction charts and Christmas books to read, as well as sharing what I’ve been up to of late, including seeing the film Carol and getting ready for Christmas. After seeing Carol, I’ve decided I’m going to take up smoking and martini drinking for a living, seeing as they made it seem so cool. That, and making time to go for tea at The Ritz as a regular fixture in my life.

Her novels centre on the lives and loves of women in their 40s and 50s, something it was important to Jen to represent: “I wanted to show that getting older can be fun and we can all grow old disgracefully!” If you’re a fan of fast-paced, witty yarns with cracking dialogue, check out Jen’s books.

Oh, and how she really wants to write a horror book!
As well as my chat with Robin, I also take a canter down the Amazon lesbian fiction charts which this month have a strangely medical leaning, as well as chatting about my summer readings, the upcoming readings in UK lesfic-land and how I’ve just completed draft one of book four.
