At the start of the year, I set out ten goals. But back then, we had no idea what 2020 had in store for us, did we? With everything that’s happened since, I was trepidacious about looking back on my goals and finding out how I’d done. But you know what? I’ve not only done well, I’ve smashed my goals for the first six months of the year! I couldn’t be happier. Here’s my round-up of January to June… Continue reading » “2020: Half-Year Goal Check-In”
Lesbians Who Write is a weekly podcast I co-host with my friend and fellow author, TB Markinson. Every week, we discuss the good, the bad and the ugly about being a full-time writer, drawing back the curtain on the writer’s life. In 2020, after over 70 podcasts, we’ve given the podcast a fresh look, and I love it. Now, when you come to the website, we’re bright and yellow, make no mistake! I hope you like the new look, too. If you haven’t listened to the podcast yet, why not give it a try? We combine writerly advice with snark & humour. Fill up your ears with lesbians today!
Welcome to episode 61 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview US author KD Williamson. KD is famed for her cops n docs series starting with Blurred Lines, and her latest romance Big Girl Pill has been lighting up the lesfic charts of late. Her books are cops and docs, wrapped in romance, wrapped in humour. Plus, they’re snarky and the characters are real. We chat writing secondary characters, diversity in lesbian fiction and KD’s very funny writing style. She says: “I don’t write books just about two main characters falling in love. I don’t write sanitised fiction. If you want books that are light, cute, nice and nobody swears, that’s great. But I’m not that writer.”
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. Enjoy the podcast, particularly KD’s gorgeous accent!
Thrilled to let you know that One Golden Summer, my brand-new lesbian romance, is out now!
You’re going to love this book because:
1. It’s got sun, sea & steam. Steamy, steamy steam.
2. It’s an age-gap romance pulsing with emotion.
3. It’s got hot movie stars on bikes. In leather. I know.
4. It’s set in a scorching UK summer.
5. It features wine, ice cream and iced buns. Hmmm, buns.
One Golden Summer was co-written with my friend and podcast host, TB Markinson, and we both loved writing this captivating love story with all the feels. I hope you enjoy reading the story of Kirsty & Saffron. Do let me know what you think.

It’s the first day of June, nearly halfway through the year, so it seems apt that I’ve finally done something I’ve been planning for the past 18 months – I’ve rebranded my All I Want series! I’m thrilled with the new look, and I hope you love it, too. Inside, the books are smart, young, funny & sexy, and I wanted a look that reflected that. I think my cover designer has done a fabulous job with this one… Continue reading » “All I Want Series Rebranded!”
Welcome to episode 60 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview US author Anna Burke. Anna writes a crossover of fantasy and sci-fi, and more recently has turned her hand to romance. Her award-winning debut, Compass Rose, had lesbian pirates, and her latest, Nottingham, is a queer retelling of Robin Hood. Is there a strong theme throughout her books? Anna says: “I like to write strong female characters. Ones that you want to have sex with, but ones who might also kill you.”
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. My new book, a co-write with TB Markinson, is due out on June 16th – title and cover reveal coming soon.

Welcome to episode 59 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview US author Karin Kallmaker, the queen of lesbian romance. Karin needs no introduction, having written over 30 novels and countless short stories, including the classic Painted Moon and her latest, Because I Said So. She talks about the inspirational power of Wonder Woman, plus how to write the perfect sex scene: “They’ve changed so much over the years. Now I would describe myself as a sensualist.” Karin also talks about the magic of being ‘in flow’, and how she owes Katherine V Forrest (of Curious Wine fame) so much: “Without her guidance, I wouldn’t be writing books 30 years later.” Find out more about her at: www.kallmaker.com
As usual, I also a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. My new book, Before You Say I Do, is getting rave reviews, and I’m already cracking on with my next book, a co-write with TB Markinson due out in June. In audiobook news, A Taste Of Love is also available now.
