Ann M. Martin, and Laura Godwin, children's illustrator
"It is confirmed that AMM is a lesbian. She is out in the literary community, and has taken her partner with her to events, including when she spoke at Smith College, her alma mater."
"I had a professor for a children's lit class that I took when I was in grad school in upstate NY last year. And apparently AMM and this professor had known each other for a while because AMM had lived in a nearby upstate NY town and the professor had worked as a librarian and had met her at a number of library conferences. I had read one of AMM's newer books for the class and in our discussion of it, it came up that AMM lives with her partner, a woman named Laura, who works in publishing."
