Read full description of the books:
Northern England 1979 - Social worker Elizabeth has finally plucked up the courage to end fourteen years of unhappy marriage. Lost and lonely, she buries herself in work to keep her emptiness at bay. Then an unexpected phone call brings troubled teenager Jan to her door and Elizabeth shocks her friends and family by taking the traumatized young woman into her home as a lodger. For Jan, Elizabeth is always bound to be more than just a landlady. Gentle, reserved, and quietly attractive, she has all the qualities guaranteed to make Jan love her. But Jan is still struggling to make sense of her devastating affair with a very different older woman. And in a world where love between women is still taboo, the frightened young lesbian does all she can to keep her feelings hidden. As the friendship between the two women deepens, long buried secrets are exposed and family tensions begin to escalate. As both women are forced to confront their demons, they make choices that will change their lives and the lives of the people around them forever. Dealing with issues of love, betrayal and abuse, and packed with memorable characters and wry humour, 'Boundaries' immediately shot into the best selling ranks for lesbian romance and lesbian fiction at the UK's independent book stores when it was first released in 1994. Now this moving lesbian love story is available again in paperback and on Amazon Kindle and a whole new generation of readers can enjoy 'Boundaries' for the first time.

Read information about the authorHi, my name is Jane Retzig and I really hope you enjoy my books.
I've been a huge fan of lesbian fiction ever since I discovered that I loved women, and in the 1980's and 90's I could regularly be found in 'Silver Moon' and 'Gay's the Word' Bookshops in London, happily working my way through the shelves of lesbian writing there.
My first novel 'Boundaries' was published in paperback in 1994 by 'The Dimsdale Press', a tiny and slightly quirky Lesbian Small Press who also published novels by popular lesbian fiction authors Jane Fletcher and Christina Smythe. Everything at 'Dimsdale' was done on a shoe-string. My launch party consisted of a cup of cappuccino at Bar Italia in Soho, and I frequently ended up carrying huge box-loads of books around London on public transport to cut down on distribution costs.
It was good fun. And over that first year, I was delighted to see 'Boundaries' reach the 'Lesbian Fiction Bestsellers' lists in independent bookstores across the UK. My second book, 'The Legacy', a short novel, was published in 1995 and also sold well.
Sadly, changes in the economy and book market in the UK meant that many of our much-loved independent bookstores closed in the late 90's, so 'Dimsdale' lost most of their major outlets and reluctantly ceased trading, leaving me without a publisher.
Life intervened for me at that point too and I took a fairly prolonged break from writing. Then the e-book revolution tempted me out of retirement. I re-issued 'Boundaries' in April 2013. 'The Photograph' (October 2013) was my first new book to be published this century... which makes me sound really ancient!!!
Since then, I've issued 'The Full Legacy' (a full length re-write of 'The Legacy', which I always thought was too short to do full justice to the characters). 'The Wrong Woman' - inspired by bullying experienced by myself and a group of my close friends. And 'The Retreat', a novel about two best friends who fall in love with the same woman.
I'm busily working on a new novel at the moment.
All my books are now available in kindle, paperback and audio.
I think that's just about all for now. Except to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who's taken the time to write to me or post reviews. It's always great to hear from you. I really do value your comments and feedback.
And Happy Reading!
