Author Ruth Sims passed away on May 8th.
She was a good online friend of mine, and of many writers in the gay community. I miss her enormously.
She was not a writer of flash fiction, but of novels. She wrote two beautiful stories set in the 19th century when men had to hide their love away. They are heart felt and very real. You can find her books here, and also at Amazon.
You can read a tribute to her on Wilde Oates, written by Victor Banis, and also on her Facebook page.
