The Top 153 Lesfic Writers Alive (and Still Writing) Today

Lesbian fiction is growing. There are more authors out there writing romances and genre fiction like mystery, fantasy and sci-fi for lesbian women and other open minded readers than even just a year ago. Most are women, a few of the well known ones are men and one or two of the better known/more prolific ones are men who pose as women.

When I started an LGBT book review blog about seven years or so ago, new lesfic in print was hard to find. There were Ellen Hart’s cozy style mysteries from her Jane Lawless series, romances by a handful of authors like Karin Kallmaker and Radclyffe, some standalone novels sprinkled out there here and there, and an assortment of writers like Mavis Applewater and Kim Baldwin who wrote original fan fiction aside from the Xena-verse for online sites who occasionally had a story picked up somewhere for a print publication. Baldwin’s first published novel, Hunter’s Pursuit, was the first lesfic novel I ever purchased (and one of the first I reviewed for my blog when I eventually started it). I remember her excitement at getting it published and all the hoops she had to jump through to make it happen.

By the time I folded the blog three years later, I’d reviewed several dozen books by men, about men, another few dozen by women, about men, scanned through a lot of erotica  and pulp aimed at straight men that was passed off as lesfic and only a couple of dozen actual lesfic works. Oh, I tried but, other than what I mentioned above and other than the classics we all know and love and a handful of books with implied lesbian characters or closeted ones, there just wasn’t much out there.

The internet, the rise of small presses that focus on lesbian works and the advent of self-publishing have changed all of that. ‘Our’ books are everywhere now. What a difference a few years – or a half dozen – make! Now, it shocks me every time I read a post somewhere by a woman lamenting that she didn’t even know lesfic existed until that moment in time and I cringe along with readers who say there are so many books they want to devour, they’re getting themselves in trouble with their spouses and partners for how much they’re spending buying and reading books for us, by us. I’ve been there…still am. My writing earnings fuel my own reading habit.

I thought it would be ‘fun’ to create a list of the top 50 living, writing authors of lesfic and share it. As I began to unearth names for the list – starting with the authors of titles I personally own in paperback or eBook form – it became apparent that there were far more than 50 I wanted to include…and far more than 100. The list crossed 100 active authors quickly and kept growing. There are many, many more women (mostly) writing books for us, of course, but here, for the first time anywhere that I could find, is a comprehensive list to track over 150 of them down via their personal websites or, failing that (especially for the Yiva and Bella published authors) via Wikipedia, Goodreads or Amazon.

Please Note: Because of the growth and the ongoing popularity of this list on this post, the list has been given its own page on this site where it can live and grow forever and be found easily from the top line navigation. Thank you authors and readers for your support of this endeavor! The original post, with the first 3 major modifications that took it from 153 to 284 authors is below. The Top 153 Lesfic Authors Still Writing

Please Note: This list is fluid. If a website is wrong or there’s an author you think should be here (yourself included) that isn’t, please let me know. Please feel free to share this list far and wide! 

Also: Many of these writers write lesbian romance novels primarily or only. In an ongoing effort, I’m working to note those who have lesfic novels in genre’s other than romance or mixed with romance, who may or may not also write romance only focused works. They’re noted after their entries as follows:

  • (C) Comics or Graphic Novels
  • (E) Erotica
  • (F) Fantasy
  • (H) Horror
  • (L) Literary Fiction
  • (M) Mystery & Suspense
  • (P) Paranormal
  • (RS) Romantic Suspense
  • (S) Sci-fi
  • (T) Thriller

ENJOY!

 R.I.P.

I have to mention these writers because the body of work they’ve contributed to lesbian fiction is…well, there are no words. Each is an icon with important works (often fiction and non-fiction) going back generations.

About Anne Hagan

I'm an East Central Ohio based government employee by day and a fiction author by night. I specialize in mystery fiction featuring lesbian sleuths and cozy fiction featuring women sleuths. I also dabble in romance especially romantic lesfic. I live with my wife and our dogs in a tiny town that’s even smaller than the Morelville of my first fiction series and we wouldn't have it any other way. My wife grew up here and she has always called this little village home. Though it’s an ultra-conservative rural community, we're surrounded here by family, longtime friends and many other wonderful people with open hearts and minds. My wife and I are the co-owners of a commercial haunted house: Hagan's House of Horrors. Much as my dream has always been to write fiction, hers has been to create it through the medium of horror. We went full commercial in 2015. Watch us as we grow!

      I did add you and I thank you for the assist. One note: I added your Goodreads profile. I’m only using individual author websites or Goodreads. Authors tend to move from publisher to publisher and no publisher site is a good indicator of where the books are available besides from the publisher. Goodreads at least carriers most (if not all) of the major retailers where readers can get your books.

    Hi- Here are two to consider adding, two for the RIP- Isabel Miller and Audre Lorde, and two for the main list- Isabella and Marie Castle.

    • Anne Hagan says:

      I’ve added three of the four in their respective areas. For now, I’ve left off Audre Lorde as this particular list is devoted to novelists and she was a poet. There’s been some call here for a list of poets and so that’s a planned future project. Thank you so much for your input. I was not familiar with Miller’s work at all and leaving Isabella off the main list was an oversight. I’m surprised no one caught it before.

  7. Glad to see such a large list! Thanks for compiling it.

    Please add me: Sarah Ettritch – http;//www.sarahettritch.com. Some of my novels don’t have a romance (or romance isn’t their primary genre). You can add F and M after my entry. Thank you.

      Thanks for the heads up. I’ll add you as F, M and S to the new list I’m creating as a page. It’s getting harder and harder for people to find the blog post unless I keep linking to it. I’m going to link it to the page though since the search engines have indexed it.
