  2. I enjoyed this show so much. Wonderful to hear you and Lee talking together. I reunited with Lee at the con in Dallas. We worked for Just Out at the same time and met in the office once. I have been Lee’s fan ever since the beginning of The Amazon Trail. Lee, I love your writing, and am so happy you are back in Oregon now. See you at the Portland con!

  5. For the last few years Lee Lynch has been a name on our PFLAG mailing list who sends notes of encouragement and support. Now I have a sense of the amazing person and her lifetime of involvement in the lesbian community. Can’t wait to meet her in person–now that she’s in Oregon. Thanks for the nice long interview!

  7. I enjoyed Lee Lynch so much. To me she is a pioneer trailblazer. I love how she brings all her stories to life. I feel what she writes. I had the pleasure of reading the Swashbuckler and the Studebaker. Smazing bookd. I look forward to reading more. Thank you Liz for an excellent show.

    • You are most welcome, and I completely agree, Lee is a gifted author as well as a trailblazer for our community. It was a golden opportunity for me to have a chance to meet her, and share her stories through my show!

  8. She’s a rock star!! The Swashbuckler was the very first lesbian fiction book I read….even before Rita…lol!!

    And thank you Liz, for a wonderful interview. Educational, and real.

    • Isn’t she just fantabulous! I’m glad you enjoyed it, I wanted to touch on many topics, to trace the sands of time that created this most wonderful trailblazer!

    • Love you too, Mercedes. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment. Just back from visiting friends I knew through the women’s community on the West Coast. Amazing to have these friends from long ago and new friends from a whole other women’s community. I hope I’m able to somehow eventually portray all of it!

      • Okay, I’m gonna need Angel Bassett to play me in the movie! ;-)
        I’m positive you will capture the essence of this moment in time as eloquently, concisely and vibrantly as you have others. I look forward to the read.
