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.

Jay writes contemporary romance about men who fall in love with other men. Jay has five books published by Dreamspinner Press, and he also self-publishes under the imprint Jaybird Press. Many of his books

I'm actually working on book 3 right now and it's nearly finished. I'm hoping to publish it by the end of Feb, or early March at the latest, so watch this space!
Thanks for reading my books :)(less)
Jay Northcote Hi, the paperback came out a day or so early. But the ebook is now live too!

Better Place by Jay Northcote
"Just like with his Housemates series, Jay uses a loose theme - in this case the Rainbow Place cafe itself - to hang his stories on.

And, like that series, each of the three books released in this one has been utterly different in the couple it feat..." Read more of this review »

This is book three in the Rainbow Place series. They don't have to be read in order and it can be read as a standalone.

"Patrick and Kyle are new colleagues, but there's no love lost between them.

Patrick is messy to Kyle's orderly. He's seven years older than Kyle and despises Grindr, of which Kyle seems inordinately fond.

Kyle is snarky, high maintenance, and flirt..." Read more of this review »

The idea for this one came to me a year or so ago and I'm happy that it finally came to fruition. I enjoyed writing another book with a trans main character.
I hope you'll like it if you decide to give it a try :)
