  • From the Author

    Dear Readers:

    With thanks to you for all the years of support and well wishes. I consider myself a very lucky writer to have such loyal and devoted readers who seem willing to take most journeys with me. Your kindness and love of lesbian books means more than I can say.

    This short story originally appeared in 1997, and I’m sorry to say nothing has changed. Twenty-plus years from my first published novel, and many good editors along the way, and I still can’t conjugate the verb “to lay.” So I’ll do almost anything to avoid using it. So imagine a love scene…
    Her hair was scented with apricot, and her ivory limbs entwined me. There was no mistaking her intentions as her rose-tinted lips parted, inviting a kiss of sweet promise. My crooning whimper of need made her laugh softly against my mouth, then she laid down on the bed, pulling me on top of her.

    Then she lay down on the bed...

    Then she lied...

    I would never forgive my ex for taking all of the writing guides with her. My at-work library wasn’t up to a finer point of grammar.
