*makes hearts for eyes*

It took a little longer than expected but Strait Laced paperbacks are now available from Amazon and other online retailers.

Opposites attract

Set in contemporary Manchester, UK, this very British romance between uptight businessman Philip and gogo dancing bad boy Ben is a “believable story of two men attempting to navigate their way across a rather wide class divide.” [Michael Joseph]

Passions ignite

They shouldn’t have anything in common, but they can’t leave each other alone. “The connection between these guys is so intense, they are so romantic and incredibly sexy together…” [Joyfully Jay]

Secrets revealed

“The flow of watching Philip unwind, the story of why he is how he is, is so worth the read, while our Ben grows to understand acceptance is a two-way street…” [Paranormal Romance Guild]

Happily ever after

“This is a really lovely romance that I enjoyed every moment of—well written with engaging, compelling heroes.” [Cat of Cat’s Books]


Philip Lomax is a man with ambition. Getting ahead in business doesn’t leave much time for fun. Relationships aren’t part of his plan, and falling in love will have to wait.

Go-go dancer and all-round bad boy Ben is his polar opposite but they can’t seem to leave each other alone.

While Philip’s certain nothing can come of it, Ben is determined to prove Philip isn’t as strait-laced as he appears. Will opposites attract in this standalone contemporary romance?

Divide and Conquer

Divide and Conquer

The world is fractured. I think we all know this, but Twitter brought it home jarringly this week as news broke of the bombing in Manchester. More specifically as right wing Americans pounced with delight, too overjoyed their prejudices were confirmed to bother hiding their ghoulish glee. Continue reading →

The Price of Silence

The Price of Silence

I’ve started posts about the new political regime a dozen times and stopped. Partly because I didn’t have much to say others haven’t said far more eloquently already, partly because once I get going I’ll just rant until I can’t stop. Partly because I’m afraid.

The day after the inauguration, America saw its single largest political demonstration since the civil war. Millions of women across all seven continents went out and they marched. It was an incredibly moving, powerful, and unifying sight. Continue reading →

Dark and Difficult Times

Dark and Difficult Times

Back in November, a couple of days after the election, I was asked to take part in a spotlight series on Wrote Podcast about American politics under a Trump regime. I happily agreed (parts one and two are online now) and it’s going to be a monthly thing we do for the foreseeable future. Remember the Weasley’s Potterwatch pirate radio station? It’s like that but with angry queers. Continue reading →
