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.

Welcome to episode 55 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview fellow UK author Claire Highton-Stevenson. Claire’s latest book, In Dyer Need, is an end-of-the-world romance that’ll have you on the edge of your seat. Claire writes detective stories as well as romance, and also won a Goldie award this year for her heartfelt book, The Promise. Claire talks about creating strong characters, writing sex scenes and how she’s an accidental writer. Her advice: decide what you want and go for it! Find her at: www.itsclastevofficial.com
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. Plus, I talk about what I’ve been up to, including working on my next, as yet untitled book, and berating myself for not writing a Christmas book this year. Next year, I promise I’ll write one. And the year after that too, just to make up for a lack of one for the past four years.
There aren’t many authors who leave me a little starstruck, but Jae is one of them. She’s a powerhouse of lesbian fiction, with oodles of books under her belt and a fanbase to be revered. So when she asked me to be a featured author on her website, answer a few questions and give away a copy of Made In London, I jumped at the chance. Want to read more and find out about what I think about London, writing, podcasting and more? Click here to read the full interview. Thanks for having me, Jae. I hope you enjoy the interview!
