New Release: Tomboy

I have my second f/f story coming out with Torquere this month. It’s called Tomboy and will also be my first published novelette. Here’s the teaser:

In 1950s America, everyone is expected to come out of a cookie-cutter mold. But Harriet Austin prefers the people who don’t, like her communist-sympathizer father and her best friend Jackie, a tomboy who bucks the school dress code of skirts and blouses in favor of T-shirts and blue jeans. Harriet comes to realize she’s different too when she starts to swoon over Rosemary Clooney instead of Rock Hudson, and before long she’s secretly dating the most popular girl in the school. But she soon learns that real love needs a stronger foundation than frilly dresses and a feminine demeanor.

And here are some of the nice things my beta readers said about it:

“I really love this. The moment at the end gave me happy shivers.”

“It showed how sometimes love isn’t a rollercoaster, it’s more a gentle coming together of two people who deserve one another.”

“I like that you began way before, say, Stonewall. Makes it more interesting to think about the time that will soon come for them.”
