I just heard your interview with Pat Stone and as the author of “Married Women Who Love Women,” I wanted to compliment you and Pat on the fine job you did.
I’d also like to say that two of the chapters in my book are for and about the husbands of married women.
In addition, “Married Women Who Love Women, Second Edition,” will be coming out during the summer of 2008. Additional chapters will include “Redefined Marriages,” “the Single Lovers of Married Women,” and “Labeling/Lesbian or Bisexual.”
Thank you once again for the wonderful job you are doing for the gay and lesbian communities.
