Sheena comes from a media background and in 2014 she started The Lesbian Review, a website dedicated to reviewing the best lesbian books and movies. In 2016 A podcast channel seemed like a natural progression and so she started The Lesbian Talk Show

Sheena discovered lesbian fiction in her late teens and it helped her with her coming out process, something for which she will always be grateful. 

Tamara is a marketing professional and has branched out into design and photography. Her natural love for research and learning meant that she was the perfect podcast partner when Sheena wanted to start Les Talk About It. (Well, that and the fact that Tamara is married to Sheena.)

Suzie Carr Gets Interviewed

The Lesbian Review Podcast

Sheena is joined by Suzie Carr today to talk about her novel The Curvy Side Of Life, her work in progress and she recommends 3 Lesbian fiction novels.

 

Suzie’s Novels we chatted about:

The Curvy Side of Life by Suzie Carr

Narrator: Stephanie Murphy

Synopsis

With her divorce finally behind her, Faith Miller is ready to move forward. And then, life tosses her a few unavoidable curveballs. Before long, she finds herself traveling down to her sister's house on the coast of Rhode Island with her seven-year old daughter. What she hoped might be a reflective time for her turns into a whirlwind adventure, thanks to her sister's live-in in-laws and the gorgeous pet and house-sitting neighbor, Candace. Candace is sexy and fun, and pulls on Faith's heart. Faith, trying to stay focused and get her life back on track, attempts to ignore her growing feelings for Candace to no avail. 

What starts out as a casual and steamy interlude evolves into something more serious. Will Faith decide her heart is better closed off from potential heartbreak or will she open it back up again to see what this new love has to offer?

Maybe Next Time by Karin Kallmaker

Publisher Bella Books

Synopsis

Lambda Literary Award Winner! 

Sabrina Starling doesn't need love. She has fame as a brilliant violinist and unlimited options for female company. Nothing can shake her -- except the memory of her very first love. Knowing that neither the teenaged nor adult Jorie will ever return her feelings, Sabrina has escaped into her music and the arms of other women. 

When injury leaves her temporarily unable to perform, Sabrina finally finds the one woman who could free her forever from the memory of those stolen Hawaiian nights with Jorie. There's one problem. The object of Sabrina's desire, Diana, is deeply in love with Pam, the woman who has shared her life for the past eighteen years.

A family funeral calls Sabrina home to the islands, but she no long believes that the gentle breezes and possible welcome in Jorie's eyes can repair the lives she's shattered, including her own. 

Karin Kallmaker's searing novel of innocent first love and dangerous seduction joins an unparalleled string of critically acclaimed bestsellers that earned her the title of Undisputed Mistress of Lesbian Romance.

A Small Country about to Vanish by Victoria Avilan

Publisher Shaggy Dog Stories

Narrator Christine Williams

Synopsis

Winner of the 2016 Golden Crown Literary Society Award.

Runner Up for the 2015 Rainbow Award.

This sweeping novel follows childhood sweethearts Rona and Shelli as they come of age and face impossible choices. Passion and heartbreak come alive in this lyrical exploration of love, friendship, and family in Israel.

A Small Country about to Vanish is Rona and Shelli's love-hate relationship with an ancient piano, each other and their difficult homeland - a country physically too small and politically too volatile to maintain its own existence.

Wise and compassionate Rona believes in fairness and equality and shows a rare ability to feel empathy for her supposed enemies, while her friends and family want security first. Shelli, an avid reader of Holocaust literature, raises old but relevant questions. Must history repeat itself? How do we know when the political pot of hatred has boiled beneath us, making it necessary to leave our belongings behind and relocate, to save ourselves and our family?

October 31, 2018

The 5 Best Spooky Lesbian Books

The Lesbian Review Podcast

Join Tara as she takes over The Lesbian Review Podcast and interviews Sheena who recommends The 5 Best Spooky Lesbian Books (plus two or three more books).

1 Dark Dreamer by Jennifer Fulton 

Publisher: Bold Strokes Books

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

The story is about Rowe Devlin, a best selling horror writer who is suffering from a severe case of writer’s block after two failed novels. Looking for a fresh start and perhaps even some inspiration, she buys an old Victorian house in Maine called Dark Harbor Cottage.

Devlin gets a little more inspiration than she was hoping for when she discovers that her new home is haunted by a rather nasty ghost. To make matters more complicated she discovers that her neighbours are identical twins, Phoebe and Cara Temple. Both deeply alluring, Rowe struggles to decide who she finds more attractive.

Together she and Phoebe try to find out why her house is haunted in an effort to put the ghost to rest.

While this is going on the Temple twins are drawn into an FBI investigation of a possible serial killer. Having to face life-changing choices, the sisters are pulled in different directions with the possibility of losing the only real family that they have left, one another.

2 Valley Of The Dead by Crystal M Romero

Publisher: Indie

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

Valley Of The Dead by Crystal M Romero is a sometimes hilarious, sometimes scary, sometimes romantic but always utterly charming zombie apocalypse novel. And what makes it even better is that it has a lesbian leading lady.

The novel starts on Gay Pride weekend to the backdrop of much celebration, since the USA was finally celebrating equality. In Silicon Valley Yvonne had just dumped her long time, cheating girlfriend and was feeling free at last. That is, until she gets a frantic phone call from her very gay best friend, Reggie. He and a bunch of drag queens are stuck in his apartment and need rescuing from the zombie apocalypse that has taken hold of the city.

She jumps in her monster of a vehicle, puts on her no nonsense butch approach to the apocalypse and ends up picking up a group of survivors along her route out of town. Eventually the survivors include Reggie and the drag queens, a young couple and two police officers.

One of the officers is Captain Jacqueline Rhodes, a competent, gorgeous woman who leaves Yvonne thinking about more than just survival.

Together, the survivors must overcome a number of challenges, the least of which is getting out of town and find somewhere safe to settle down.

3 Haunting Love by KA Moll

Publisher: Triplicity Publishing

Available on audiobook: Yes

Narrator: Emily Beresford

Synopsis

Haunting Love by KA Moll is the story of Gabe and Anna. Gabe is struggling to come to terms with her wife’s death a few years prior. One of the reasons that she is struggling is that she can see or at least sense spirits but she cannot sense her wife and she has not been able to process her loss.

Anna is new in town, having recently taken a job working alongside Jaina, her friend from college and the main character in Moll’s novel Soul Mates.

Anna is renting a house from Gabe’s father and is having rather disturbing electrical problems. Gabe comes over to see if she can fix the problem and discovers two things. Firstly, she is very attracted to Anna and secondly, the house is haunted.

Anna and Gabe have a less than pleasant encounter, thanks in part to Anna’s fear of being attracted to a woman. Gabe is a handsome woman that stirs her blood and her fears.

Will Gabe be able to overcome her sorrow enough to start a new relationship with Anna and will Anna be able to work through her fear of being who she is enough to act on her attractions? And then there are the ghosts that need to be dealt with too.

4a Keepers Of The Cave by Gerri Hill

Publisher: Bella Books

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

Keepers Of The Cave by Gerri Hill is simply brilliant. Hill should write more horror.

Hill should write more horror.

How could I not try a book with this description: The senator’s daughter disappears and FBI agents CJ Johnston and Paige Riley are assigned to a backwaters all-girls school in East Texas near where the senator’s daughter was last seen. They figure that the assignment is a dead-end, but strange things keep happening in the area. Something is lurking in Hoganville.

4b Weeping Walls by Gerri Hill

Publisher: Bella Books

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

Weeping Walls by Gerri Hill is the second book with CJ Johnston and Paige Riley as the main characters.

Keepers of the Cave is the first book, so read that review first if you haven’t already.

While I loved Keepers of the Cave, I think that Hill created and even better second book with Weeping Walls.

The story is about an abandoned house in a small town in Houston. Here they find a dead body that is similar to a cold case from fourteen years earlier. The four FBI agents are sent to investigate.

5 Paradox Valley by Gerri Hill

Publisher: Bella Books

Available on audiobook: Yes

Narrator: Abby Craden

Synopsis

Was it an earthquake? A meteor? Or something else entirely?

Running from a marriage proposal in Seattle, Dana Ingram returns to her parents' farm in Western Colorado for a two-week vacation in Paradox Valley. Only a couple of days into it, however, a small earthquake leaves them without power. Cars won't start, batteries don't work, and cell phones are useless.

When a Black Hawk helicopter vanishes off of radar, Captain Corey Conaway is sent in to locate it and its crew - all while keeping the disappearance out of the media. When she meets Dana and her cousin, Butch, Corey solicits their help in the search. But as they travel on horseback through the rugged and remote Paradox Valley, what they stumble upon soon has them running for their lives.

Tara's BONUS Books

6 Castle Wrath by Karin Kallmaker

Publisher: Indie

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

A bubbly ingenue falls heir to a remote, storm-drenched castle in a foreign land. All hers - if she can outlast the dangerous and too delicious competing claimant. Strange happenings, a curious (and disconcertingly attractive) caretaker, plus sensuous nightmares may be far more than California girl Brittany Brannigan can handle. 31,000 words.

Brittany's Scottish adventure has a pinch of horror and more than a dash of romance.

7 The Secret Of Sleepy Hollow by Andi Marquette

Publisher: Ylva Publishing

Available on audiobook: No

Synopsis

Tabitha “Abby” Crane, a doctoral student working on her thesis, doesn’t allow herself much time outside academia. Fortunately, she’s managed to squeeze in a research trip over Halloween weekend to the historical society of Sleepy Hollow, New York, where she hopes to uncover new research on the notorious town’s most infamous legend—that of the headless horseman. But she has a personal stake in this trip: Abby’s own ancestor, Ichabod Crane, disappeared mysteriously over two hundred years ago, perhaps at the hands of the ghostly horseman.

Abby has no reason to expect anything of Sleepy Hollow beyond immersing herself in archival collections and enjoying its Halloween festivities, but then she crosses paths with Katie, who makes her head spin and her heart pound. When Katie invites her on a nighttime visit to the glen where the horseman allegedly rides, Abby can’t say no, upending her plans for a quiet research retreat. And when Abby and Katie, who has her own ties to the famous story, find what may be the key to the disappearance of Ichabod Crane all those years ago, love, legend, and magic intermingle, making clear that Sleepy Hollow has plans of its own for yet another Crane.

What Asexuality Is And Is Not

Ask An Asexual

Sheena is joined by author and podcaster, Heather Rose Jones and author Alex Woods to talk about what it really means to be an asexual. In this episode we learn what Asexuality is and is not as well as discussing some common myths, stereotypes and answering listener questions.

Heather and Alex answer

  • How you come to label yourself asexual
  • The claim that Asexuals don’t exist
  • What’s the difference between being asexual and aromantic
  • Does asexual mean not having any sexual feelings, or does it mean not having sexual feelings towards another person?
  • How can an asexual know he or she is homosexual or straight if he or she is not driven by sex attraction? Is there another kind of attraction? What is this attraction?
  • Are you born asexual?

Plus Heather gets geeky about spectrums and we love it.

Sheena Gets Interviewed

Seize the Day Podcast

Welcome to Seize the Day Podcast with Natalie Miller-Snell.   I’m super excited about this show.  One of the motivators for starting Seize the Day, was to get inspirational women on the show and talk through how they found success and what got them to the point they are at now.  In today’s show, I get to interview Sheena Lemos Ebersohn, founder of the The Lesbian Review and The Lesbian Talk Show.  We discuss Sheena’s journey and how the TLR and Talk Show came to be.  We talk websites, Requiem for Immortals and we learn a little about more about Sheena.

 

This was a really important podcast for me to do - finding the TLR changed my life, for the better.  I’ve met some wonderful friends through this great community, had so many great books recommended and I am here now, podcasting, which I would never have imagined.  Sheena has set up something truly wonderful with the TLR and Talk Show, and it’s really great to hear her take on it.

 

Seize the Day was inspired by my favourite Latin expression Carpe Diem.  I’m very much a “glass is half full” person and I’ve had some great mentors throughout my life, who have offered me invaluable guidance.  We have so many wonders at our fingertips and sometimes we just need a little help, or someone to remind us.

Relic by Anne Hagan

Book 1 in the Morelville Mysteries

Cases collide for two star-crossed ladies of law enforcement!

Customs Special Agent Dana Rossi was forced to start her life anew after a bad breakup with her former girlfriend and the loss of a job that she loved. These days, she spends life on the road, moving from one case to another until one day when runs run right into the path of Sheriff Mel Crane. The feisty, sexy butch cop is as determined to uncover a counterfeiting ring in her county as Agent Rossi becomes to stop a stalker obsessed with Mel and hot for her company. Dana is under the added pressure of conducting an undercover investigation of her own with a tight deadline: finding and then stopping a ring of smugglers bringing high-end designer knock-offs into the states. 

Could their cases be related? When repeated vicious attacks on Mel and on her home accelerate the danger for her and also their attraction to each other, they become desperate to find the truth and solve the two mysteries. Can they find a way to work together to resolve both cases while coming to terms with their growing feelings for one another? Can Dana move beyond her jilted lover past and find true happiness with a small town Sheriff? 

The debut novel from Anne Hagan, her Mel and Dana characters in Relic are a great addition to the pantheon of lesbian women sleuths like Jane Lawless in the novels of Ellen Hart, the characters of Gerri Hill like Detective Tori Hunter with the hard-boiled edges of the Sara Paretsky private detective, V. I. Warshawski.

The Passed Prop by Anne Hagan

Book 1 in the Morelville Cozies

Chloe Rossi wants to retire with her husband and move away from suburban sprawl to bucolic Morelville; the only trouble is, Morelville is experiencing its worst crime wave ever and Marco Rossi wants no part of a move there. What to do?

Faye Crane would like nothing more than to have her good friend Chloe move closer to her and to Chloe’s own daughter. She’s got Chloe convinced it’s a smart move but Marco is a tougher nut to crack. A string of brutal, ritualistic style murders around Halloween with no witnesses and little evidence to work with has Fayes’ Sheriff daughter and her entire department stymied. Marco is second guessing even taking his retirement since Sheriff Mel can’t get a handle on the killings and bring peace and wellbeing back to the tiny village.

Someone has to root out a killer. Can Faye and Chloe nose around and figure out what the police can’t to solve the crimes? If they do, will Marco still waver or will he consent to move? 

This is the first book in a new spin-off series from the Morelville Mysteries series by Anne Hagan. The book stands alone but, if you’re interested in getting all of the Crane and Rossi families back story, you should check out the fifth book in the first series, Viva Mama Rossi!

If Faye and Chloe were 35 years younger, they could give Stephanie Plum and Lula, from the Janet Evanovich series that features them, a run for their money. They aren't quite to the Miss Marple stage from the Agatha Christie novels yet but they do have to work crime solving in, in between caring for their demanding spouses - something the spinster Jane Marple never had to worry about - and around the needs of their overactive bladders. Too much coffee during the day is never a good thing during late evening stakeouts.
