Mentioned in this episode:


Mary Burns is a long-time resident of New York City, sharing the best life ever with her wife of over twenty years. After receiving a Master of Fine Arts in Playwriting from Columbia University in 1991, she experienced a twenty-year bout of writer’s block. During that time, she carved out a career as an executive assistant. Finally taking a sabbatical to assess things and perhaps try writing a play again, what came out instead was a novel. “Forging a Desire Line” was published by Bold Strokes Books in 2020, followed by “Suspecting Her” in Sept. ’21. “Cold Case Heat,” a murder mystery, arrived this September.
She has also published short stories in Sinclair Sexsmith’s award-winning Best Lesbian Erotica, volumes 4 (Dec. 2019) and the non-award winning volume 5 (Dec. 2020 / both Cleis Press)..
