About the Author

After decades as an award-winning journalist, poet and playwright, it was natural for Nat Burns to turn to fiction, and to explore the lives and loves of lesbians. With a long history of reporting on the music scene in her monthly Lesbian News column, she's an editor and proofreader who also spends considerable time as a systems analyst. She recently relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Myrtle Beach Mayhem March 1 2014
By E. B. MULLIGAN - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was looking for a romance and about a quarter of the way into the book we read about "The dead cat, mauled and partially skinned ...", that just didn't factor into a romance for me. Exceptional author, the pace of the storytelling was excellent and the characters clearly defined and whole.

Dorcas 'Dorry' Woods is a 55 year old recluse in Schuyler Point aka Marstown on the coast of South Carolina. For 20 years she has run a thriving dojang open from 6am to 8pm. 10 years ago, the town paper outed Dorry as a lesbian and cast doubt on her when her "lover" died of cancer.

30 year old Marya Brock leaves Seattle to live with her parents after she and her girlfriend of 3 years split. Marya gets a job as a reporter on the local paper. Marya is at a low point emotionally, especially feeling that her parents are shamed that she is gay.

Every couple chapters there is a chapter spoken by an anonymous person that reminds me of Norman Bates from the movie Psycho. Creepy. Next thing Dorry's brother-in-law, Denty, is found dead on Marya's front yard, a cottage she rents from Dorry. A complex resolution to the murder and a timeline going back 30 years complete the story. A resolution that left me gasping. For a terrific video author interview search 'Lizzie's Bedtime Stories Episode 42: Nat Burns'.

Nat Burns is an exceptional writer, and I found this new book does not disappoint. Intriguing characters and plot. Made me feel involved with the story, and I can't say that about most lesbian fiction! I highly recommend this book.
