What's a Jo Graham book?

I was doing a grant application recently and one of the questions stumped me. "What makes it a _____ book? How would a reader know your work out of all the books in the library?" So I put that question to you: What is a Jo Graham book? What makes it different? How would you guess a book was mine?

Definitely something with 'rebuilding after the catastrophe' and 'trying to change the world to the better'. Family is important to the characters, whether biological or chosen. Much variation in sexuality and family constellations.

Definitely rebuilding after the catastrophe. Because someone always does.

That's one of the most enduring things my dad taught me. He said that through all of human history, through all wars and plagues and catastrophes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis, diseases and ravages, there are always survivors. And they always rebuild. He said, "Be the survivor."
