The Bee Defense is a chess book about a new chess opening invented by Honey, the author, a retired computer hacker and chess addict. The book details a defensive way to play chess and chess hackery devised from playing 86,000 games of speed chess since 2015. The Bee Defense contains Honey’s chess history, opening details, interesting games, her chess story and chess quotes. Not many chess openings have been developed by female chess players, so The Bee Defense is a fresh opening!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
A kid from my favorite chess site asked me to teach them my chess style. I developed a defensive way to play chess which is ideal for speed chess or Bullet chess. The Bee Defense is all about blocking your opponent when they attack versus aggressively attacking styles of chess. The Bee Defense indeed is a feminine chess style.
I have played “street chess” all around New York City in my twenties, from playing with ex-cons in Washington square park, to fellow Wu Tang Clan fans at Union square where they charge you a dollar a game, even if you win the game, just for using the pieces! From the chess shops on Thompson street, central park, and my chess home which was in the Carl Schurz Park on the Upper East side of Manhattan. There I played with migrated old men from Hungary, Russia, Greece and other countries. They called me “patzer” but also nicknamed me: “The Girl”, as I would often come to play with them after work.
