About Hazel Jane Plante

Hazel Jane Plante is a queer trans librarian, cat photographer, and writer. 

In a previous life, she co-founded a micro-press, co-edited a little literary journal, co-hosted a podcast, and released lo-fi albums under the name Sparse.

Her debut novel Little Blue Encyclopedia (for Vivian), published by Metonymy Press, sifts through a queer trans woman’s unrequited love for her straight trans friend who died. A queer love letter steeped in desire, grief, and delight, the story is interspersed with encyclopedia entries about a fictional TV show set on an isolated island.
