The Convincing Hour

Author Ann Roberts talks about how her latest work is a love letter to students

Several years ago during my tenure as an educational consultant, I was sitting in a classroom watching an excellent teacher engage every student in his room. They volunteered answers, respectfully commented on each other’s opinions and seemed genuinely thrilled about learning. No one acted out and no one refused to do what the teacher asked. […]

Gentleman Jack

Karin Kallmaker: Why Louisa from Touchwood Would Love Gentleman Jack

Was it audacious for a 29-year old (that would be me) to write about a love story for a woman her age and a woman in her mid-50s? The age-gap romance didn’t yet exist in lesbian fiction, at least to my knowledge.  My only literary model would have been Jane Eyre. I blithely ignored the […]

Katherine Rupley

Author Katherine Rupley talks about merging her love of rock climbing with storytelling

Leslie’s story has been in my head for years and now it’s written in this book. It brings together some of my loves, strong women doing cool things, rock climbing, movies, Joshua Tree National Park, and supportive communities. Before time and wandering attention distracted me, I spent many happy hours in climbing gyms and outside […]

The Right Closet

Author Melissa Price talks about what she learned from Drag Queens

When the muse knocks, shimmy to the door to answer! The Right Closet is a timely, poignant-while-comedic tale. Marinated in farce and baked in a sociopolitical oven, it posits hate and division versus love and unity. The characters and their story brewed for a long time through years of real world social wins and losses […]

Karin Kallmaker: That Time When I Was Saved by a Drag Queen

That title sounds so dramatic, but when it comes to 2020 and beyond, life has been dramatic to the point where it feels like the new normal. So there I was struggling to write Simply the Best, finding joy in very little beyond my closest circle of family and friends, beloved books and games, and […]

Guardian

#bellabooks author Jen Lawrence shares a powerful essay on colourism and being colored

When asked to write a few points for my biography on the Bellabooks website, as is standard for me, I didn’t know what to say. I strongly dislike talking about myself and found it awfully reminiscent of that dreaded question during job interviews: “Tell us about yourself” Not a new question then, and I’ve frequently […]
