When I am not reviewing books I am doing the million things behind the scenes of TLR and The Lesbian Talk Show.

I have also been the editor of a business magazine, manager of a marketing and website department. Leadership is a topic that has always fascinated me and I have read every book and attended every course I could find.

Books I Love

I love stories with loads of angst. I like books that are different.

I will read anything from romance to action and horror as long as it is well written and different.

sheena's favouriteMy favourite books are the ones that make it into my Top 10 lists and are marked as my favorites.

If you are looking for the best lesbian novels then you must try our top 10 lists.

Books I Don’t Love

I am not a fan of molestation, rape and people hurting or abusing others. I am not a huge fan of erotica but really well done books capture my attention no matter the genre.

Why I Love Reviewing Books

When I was a kid I wanted to be a hero – not like a superhero, but rather more like someone who saved people who were trapped by bad guys. My parents can regale you with long stories of my ‘saving people’ exploits.

And I guess for me reviewing is like being that hero because lesbian books saved me. They made me realise that I was not alone in my feelings for women and that I was an okay person even though I wanted to do more than be friends with some girls.

I want to bring that to people. And who knows, maybe a book I recommend will change the way someone sees herself and make her feel okay with who she is too.

Books Read Per Month

When I am working full time I will only read two to four books a month. Especially with all the podcasts I work on and running of the sites that I do. I read a lot more when I am not pursuing everything else.

In A Phrase

I can best be described as a founder. I tend to start new things and grow them. I enjoy doing that and love looking at ways of improving what I am doing.
