Elora Bishop is a queer lady author who happens to be addicted to tea (not that you could tell from reading any of her novels, surely), has pink hair, lots of tattoos and a very silly sense of humor.
She writes lesbian fantasy and fairy tale retellings, and is most well known for the collaborative project she creates with her wife, author Jennifer Diemer: the Sappho's Fables series, fairy tales retold from a lesbian perspective.
Elora also writes under the name Sarah Diemer. Under this, she wrote the YA, lesbian retelling of the Greek myth of Persephone and Hades, The Dark Wife, the 2012 Golden Crown Literary Award winner for Speculative Fiction.

Isabella is as accident-prone as always, Emily is sweet and surprisingly assertive, and Alice is as snarky and adorable as ever. The story is charming like the previous 2 tales, and although the stakes are a little less personal and more abstract it doesn't diminish from enjoying this novella. I always finish the tale smiling and eager for the next story in Isabella and Emily's magical life.

This was an insta-buy for me-- the Benevolence Tales is one of my all-time favorite series, and I always am counting down the days until the next one releases. This story was a sweet tale about the coming of spring that introduced us to more of the people and customs of the town of Benevolence, which we first encountered in ONE SOLSTICE NIGHT. I loved learning more about the mythology of the world and about characters we'd me briefly in passing before, such as Mr. Ox and Lacey Turtle. I get more attached to the little town, its residents, and especially Isabella, Emily and Alice each time we meet them. I highly recommend ONE OSTARA SUNRISE to anyone who's looking for a sweet, lightweight fantasy read.
