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.
