Accolades & Praise
Romancing the Inventor was an Amazon and Locus bestseller
“Romancing the Inventor is such an incredibly sweet, slow build romance and I totally fell for both of the main characters.”
“I have needed a lesbian romantic comedy for ages and I finally got one so cute and romantic I’m pretty sure it has given me diabetes…. Romancing the Inventor has set the tone for a whole series with its sometimes light and fluffy, sometimes rather serious, and always tongue-in-cheek, storytelling. It has also really raised my expectations for Queer romantic comedy and having been given a taste I would like plenty more please.”
