I don't hang out on Goodreads much, so if you'd like to connect with me then Twitter, Facebook or an email is usually best :) All my contact details are on my website.

Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England. He comes from a family of writers, but always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed him by. He spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content.

Thanks for reading my books :)(less)

Second Chance is FREE for Trans Day of Visibility

Hi everyone,


Today is an important day on my calendar, because it’s the International Transgender Day of Visibility.


As many of you know, I’m transgender. I was assigned female at birth and only came to realise and accept that I was trans when I was about 45 years old (better late than never).

“I should get over it and go back to pining over celebrities instead. At least they’re completely unobtainable so it’s less depressing when they don’t like me back.”
Jay Northcote, Rainbow Place

“Le etichette possono essere riduttive. A volte bisogna smettere di pensare a genere e orientamento e concentrarsi sulla persona. Se ti importa di qualcuno, se ti senti bene quando siete insieme, se ti eccita... allora che importanza ha tutto il resto?”
Jay Northcote, Helping Hand

“Is that a yes?” Sean’s dark gaze flicked up to meet Justin’s, before Justin threw his head back onto the pillow, closed his eyes, and let Jesus take the wheel.”
