Lesbian Crush Diaries

I've been keeping diaries since 1983, and have published two of them. I'm a diary fan.

Lesbian Crushes at School: A Diary on Growing Up Gay in the Eighties

In 1983 thirteen-year-old Natasha is in love with her French teacher, Miss Williams. When Natasha is cruelly banished from Miss Williams's class forever, the love develops into obsession ... stalking ... unhealthy behaviour ... and painfully misguided cries for attention.

 

This uncomfortable yet light-hearted memoir in diary form is primarily a record of obsession.

 

Natasha is a love-sick lesbian teenager in an all-girls school in the eighties, juggling her Latin homework, Bible study, a crush on Elaine Paige, and her suppressed sexuality. How can she make sense of it all?

 

But more importantly ... tormented by unrequited love ... how can Natasha make Miss Williams love her back?
