Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jay Northcote is brilliant at giving us well drawn characters and low angst stories and Starting From Scratch was no different. The writing was top notch as was the character and relationship development. I just loved Ben and Sid's story."  - My Fiction Nook

"I was floored by the detail and delicacy of the book." -
V's Reads

"Starting From Scratch is a very personal, open and honest insight intothe challenges, both emotional and physical, faced by a transman, taking his first steps into a relationship as his true self." -
DivineMagazine

"For fans of the author and the series - this will be a must and a delight - if you are new to the author this is a great example of how well Jay creates wonderful characters who get delightful HEAs." -

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

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.

One day, Jay decided to try and write a short story—just to see if he could—and found it rather addictive. He hasn't stopped writing since.

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.

Jay is transgender and was formerly known as she/her.
