 Lee Lynch


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 novels, "Beggar of Love" and "Sweet Creek", are available from Bold Strokes Books (boldstrokesbooks.com). Her recent short stories can be found in “Romantic Interludes” and in “Read These Lips,” at www.readtheselips.com. She has twice been nominated for Lambda Literary Awards and her novel "Sweet Creek" 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 www.ontopmag.com, justaboutwrite.com and camprehoboth.com.

In 2009 the Golden Crown Literary Society honored her with the Trailblazer Award. 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. Her humorous mystery Sue Slate Private Eye was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award.

New Victoria published her novel "Rafferty Street" and the anthology "Off The Rag" (Lambda Literary Award finalist) which she edited with Akia Woods.

 Her other books are available from Star Crossed Productions and through Bold Strokes Books. "The Butch Cook Book" can be ordered from butchcookbook.com. She lives in rural Florida with her sweetheart and their furry ruffians.
