Heather Rose Jones (she/her)
Heather Rose Jones is the author of the Alpennia historic fantasy series: an alternate-Regency-era Ruritanian adventure revolving around women’s lives woven through with magic, alchemy, and intrigue. The third volume, Mother of Souls, won the Gaylactic Spectrum award for best novel of 2016. Her short fiction has appeared in The Chronicles of the Holy Grail, Sword and Sorceress, Lace and Blade, and at Podcastle.org. Heather blogs about research into lesbian-relevant motifs in history and literature at the Lesbian Historic Motif Project and has a podcast covering the field of lesbian historical fiction which has recently expanded into publishing audio fiction. Her most recent Alpennia book, Floodtide, has proven to be sadly current, as the characters deal with an epidemic and the consequences of official indifference.
