Historical NoteReturn to Top

Lee Lynch (1945- ) was born in Manhattan, NY in 1945. Lynch is an American author who started writing lesbian fiction and non-fiction in the 1960s when she was a frequent contributor to The Ladder, the only lesbian publication at the time. Since then, Lynch's short stories have appeared in a number of anthologies and she has published several novels and essays. Lynch has written reviews and feature articles for The Lambda Book Report, among other publications, and her syndicated column, "The Amazon Trail," has been running in papers across the country since 1986.

Lynch is a recipient of the Alice B. Reader Award for Lesbian Fiction, the James Duggins Mid-Career Author Award (which honors LGBT mid-career novelists of extraordinary talent and service to the LGBT community), and in 2006, was inducted into the Saints and Sinners Literary Hall of Fame. Her novel Sweet Creek was a finalist for a Golden Crown Literary Society Award and was named one of the top ten fiction books of the year by the Q Syndicate. In 2009, Lynch was awarded the Golden Crown Literary Society Trail Blazer award for lifetime achievement, in recognition of the contributions she has made to the field of lesbian literature.
