Missouri Vaun is a fantastic author of lesbian fiction. She specializes in science fiction, although not exclusively.
I love her writing style and the fact that she writes smokin’ hot sex scenes doesn’t hurt at all.
This is what she has to say about her work:
A brief description of your writing:
My intention is to write stories that are heartfelt. Stories with characters that readers grow fond of and want the best for in the end.
One word to describe your books:
Who/What inspired you to start writing?
I’ve always written stories. Even as a child.
Why lesbian fiction?
It’s more satisfying to me, as a writer and a lesbian, to populate the world of fiction with strong lesbian characters.

What inspired you to write All Things Rise:
This story was inspired by current events, but climate change and wealth desparity. If society is allowed to continue on it’s current trajectory, where will we end up?
What inspired you to write The Time Before Now:
This book is a prequel to All Things Rise and was inspired by one of my readers who was curious about how two of the older characters from that first book fell in love. Of course, this book took on a life of its own and is now one of my favorites.
What inspired you to write The Ground Beneath:
Jessica from the first book needed her own story. I wanted to let her fall in love. This novella is her story.
What inspired you to write Valley of Fire:
This novel is a continuation of the story from All Things Rise and focuses on Ava, the pilot from the first book. This installment in the series takes the story arc to the next level, basically leading the characters toward a revolution. But it comes from an unexpected source.
What inspired you to write Death by Cocktail Straw (Book 1 in the adventures of Nash Wiley):
This is the first installment in a series of novellas about the dating adventures of Nash Wiley. Each book is a standalone, but read together all four work together as one narrative arc. This series has quite a bit of humor in it. The concept was inspired by my (and my friends) dating misadventures in our twenties.
Anything else you think readers may find interesting:
My pen name, Missouri Vaun, was actually my Great Grandmother’s name.
