    Ready for queer historical romance? We sure are! What better place to start than with Suzanne's newest book - a story about sisters, war, grief, resiliency, trauma, LOVE, and more.

We talk about writing historical romance, specifically from a queer lens, what brought Suzanne to this specific historical moment, favorite characters, advice for writers, and her backlist titles!

    #54. Margot Wood - Author Interview

    We had so much fun talking to debut author, Margot Wood, of Fresh! Fresh is such a fun book, full of queer-norm characters, sex-positivity, figuring yourself out at 18, fun narrative/visual pieces, inspirations from the classic novel Emma, and laugh-out-loud funny scenes. This book brought us back to our college times and both Sam and Alex kept wishing for a gayer college experience. We talk Emerson, queer representation, writing advice, and more! 

    No spoilers in this episode so feel free to listen whenever - and if you haven't already read Fresh, you will after this episode!

Finding their groove

This podcast gets better with each episode. I really appreciate the book content as well as the non-book content like the sex education episode!
