Here's a list of some books centering on two moms raising children to gether as a couple! Happy Mother's Day to all the two-mom families out there and best of luck to those trying to become two moms. Links are to my more detailed reviews.

Dates! An Anthology of Queer Historical Fiction - short stories told mostly in graphic novel form, set in any point in history (pre-1960's) all over the world, and all guaranteed to veer away from tragic queer tropes. One of my favorite pieces in the collection was about a pair of Black women in a rural early 20 th century community who bring their families together when their husbands die, and eventually fall in love themselves.

Girl Goddess #9: In the short story "Dragons in Manhattan" - hard to mention without spoiling but the protagonist is trying to get some answers about her life, and her moms are a couple. Goodreads link, since I don't have a review (I actually read the story ten years ago so it's not fresh in my mind.)

Some of my fiction has moms who love other women, too! In Fearless, a newly-out-of-the-closet lesbian band mom falls for a music teacher while snowed in at All-State, and in A Harvest of Ripe Figs (followed by The Olive Conspiracy, coming July 2016), a lesbian queen solves mysteries as part of her royal duties while raising the baby princess with her partner. I hope you'll be tempted to join their adventures!

P.S. Fannie Flagg's Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café , the book, has woman couple raising a son together. Don't be fooled by the extra little straightwashing details in the movie; the book is definitely worth checking out. It's been eons since I've read it, though, so I don't have a post about it.
