Lesfic Author List

The Top Lesfic Writers Alive (and Still Writing) Today

In mid-June of 2016, 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. The original list I posted contained 153 names of active authors plus a few that were brand new and a handful of notable ones that have passed on.

There are, of course, many, many more women (mostly) writing books for us, but here, for the first time anywhere that I could find, I’d created a comprehensive list to track over 250 of them down via their personal websites or, failing that (especially for the Yiva and Bella published authors) via Wikipedia and Goodreads. Once I publicized the existence of the list, it grew quickly as readers gave me the names of their favorites and the less shy among the author community came forward to toot their own horns. Along the way, I’ve found and added additional authors myself.

In the months since original publication, it’s become apparent that the list needed it’s own page here so it can be easily found. The link above brought you here. This link takes you to the original post as modified three times and recirculated.

What follows below is the list as it stands as of this moment in time.

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 genres 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:

  • (B) Bisexual
  • (C) Comics or Graphic Novels
  • (E) Erotica
  • (F) Fantasy
  • (H) Horror
  • (L) Literary Fiction
  • (M) Mystery & Suspense
  • (NA) New Adult
  • (P) Paranormal
  • (PT) Pirate
  • (RS) Romantic Suspense
  • (S) Sci-fi
  • (T) Thriller
  • (V) Vampire
  • (W) Witches
  • (YA) Young Adult
  • (Z) Zombie

ENJOY!
