Personal Quote:

When I was growing up, I always read horror books, while my sister read romance novels. My sister became unmarried and pregnant during high school, and she kept saying, 'This wasn't supposed to happen! Why is this happening to me?' Someone should have given her another book to read. (February 1996, "We Are Not Monsters: It's Time To Talk About Sex," University of Maine at Farmington) See more »


Her 1988 collection of short stories, Trash, won two Lambda Literary Awards, for Best Small Press book and Best Lesbian book, in 1989. See more »
