When a person calls themselves a ‘writer’ that really opens the door to a wide variety of ‘writing’. There is fiction and nonfiction, of course, but what I mean is ‘genre‘. For example, there are science fiction, fantasy, romance, historical fiction, mainstream, etc etc genres. THEN within each of the genres are other segments. For example, ‘hard’ science fiction vs ‘soft’ science fiction. Hard SF means that what happens in the book could possibly actually happen. Soft SF means that the current information available could not produce such events and some “suspension of belief” is expected.

So what genre do I fall into?

Good question!

Of the projects I have going right now, I have a science fiction, a fantasy, and several romances. Ugh, romance? Yes, romance. But not just the usual ‘throbbing member’ type. I got womyn doin’ womyn in mine. In regular terms, that means I am writing lesbian romance and lesbian-themed science fiction and fantasy. Now, feel better just knowing, don’t you?

My debut novel, Butch Girls Can Fix Anything (romance), was released by Regal Crest Enterprises in January ’07. My second novel, To Sleep (science fiction), was released in 2013. The second book in The Soliloquy series (To Dream) was released in 2015.

I used to keep a list here of my current projects, my “on-long-term-hold” projects, and other ideas that I was working on. But it was hard to keep track of it all since it fluctuated so much. Some would go on hold only to be yanked back out a month or so later. I’m rather erratic and eclectic in my writing!

I’ve decided to instead just keep a list here of everything and hope for the best.

The Soliloquy series (Science Fiction)

The Castanea Chronicles (Fantasy)
Sometimes it is the sidekick that is more interesting than the heroine!

  • The Graced – Lea the Sword Swing, Goddess Blessed, Fighter of Evil heroine (while this is book one, it will not be released first)
  • The Blessed – Sarah the Sidekick
  • The Divine – everything comes together in a heavenly glow.

The Butch Girl Books (Romance)

  • Butch Girls Can Fix Anything – Kelly and Grace; published 2007
  • Butch Girls: As Advertised – Nikki and Ellen
  • Butch Girls: Stereotype This!- Harri and Liz
  • BG4 (no working title, just notes) – Chaz and Sam
  • BG5 (no working title, just notes) – Rain and ??
  • BG6 (no working title, just notes) – Annette and Kaye

Elements (Fantasy) – Magic! Wizards! Fire, Earth, Water, Air! And Spirit! Oh my!

The Relic (Urban Fantasy/Paranormal/Science Fiction) – Yeah, this one has a little of everything…

Butterfly Effect (Science Fiction) – This is based on the world of The Soliloquy

Scholarly Ways (Science Fiction) – as much as I like this one, I’m not sure it will ever get anywhere. At least not any time soon.

  1. Hi Paula,
    Usually I send a note from my work email – but was wandering around this evening and ended up on your web site – linked here from Vollbrecht’s site. Pretty neat. So I’m checking out your space. Out of new books at the moment so into my re-reading…I have now nearly 600 lesbian books to chose from – am never going to be able to retire. Not heading up or thru that way any time soon – probably head towards the Ellijay area for a weekend soon – gotta have a mtn. fix. Wish we could head out west for the convention – the location sounds fantastic from all reports. Gotta go – hope all’s well in the NC mountains!
