If you've found your way here from the GCLS panel on historical fiction, let me give you a quick tour. The Lesbian Historic Motif Project blog has an introductory page here, or you can just browse the bibliography of works we've covered so far. The best place to start with the podcast is with our chronological index.
Heather Rose Jones writes fantasy, historic fantasy, and historical fiction, including the Alpennia series with swordswomen and magic in an alternate Regency setting. She blogs about research into lesbian-like motifs in history and literature at the Lesbian Historic Motif Project which provides inspiration for her fiction. She has a PhD in linguistics, studying metaphor theory and the semantics of Medieval Welsh prepositions, and works as an industrial failure investigator in biotech.
