Out and Proud

Anticipated publication date March 2019.

Regal Crest Enterprises

Lottie Grant is a 40-year-old mother of two struggling to come to terms with her new-found identity as a lesbian living in a small Scottish coastal community in the Highlands of Scotland. A witty and thoughtful account of one woman’s journey from conventional married life-with-two-children towards acceptance of her true sexuality: learning about life as an “out” lesbian, finding a new partner and dealing with all the complexities that her new life choices have created.

After a chance encounter with the local gay vet Alice, Lottie is thrown into the excitement and turmoil of a new relationship. Lottie’s insecurities about lesbian sex and her lack of experience are humorously depicted in the engaging first chapter of the book. Whilst Lottie establishes new friendships within the small lesbian community she meets another guiding but often disruptive influence, the inimitable Pru. Pru is an older lesbian with eccentric views about life she has a sizable ego and is a dominating presence on those around her.

The novel chronicles the developing relationship between Lottie and Alice and the challenges they, and the family, experience. This is a unique and light-hearted novel which will be sure to make you belly laugh and cry, simultaneously.



Originally from Edinburgh in Scotland Lisa now lives near Sherwood Forest in England. She has always been a keen observer of human nature and personal relationships. With a witty and mischievous sense of humour Lisa generally sees the funny side of life. She loves to travel and can often be found planning her next adventure. She also likes nothing more than jumping into her campervan with her wife, sons and miniature dachshund, and heading off on a road trip.

After a traditional marriage and two children, Lisa entered her thirties as a more authentic version of herself. She accepted her sexuality as a lesbian and embarked upon a new and exciting stage of her life which eventually led her to meet her wife Lucy. As an ‘Out and Proud’ lesbian she met many extraordinary people and she experienced both the joys and the complexities of dating as a single gay parent. Her experiences led her to create a hilarious fictional world of lesbian dating in her first novel “Out and Proud”. Whilst her human characters are fictional, the names of the animal characters have been changed to protect their identities. Lisa was inspired to write her first book by her wife who told her, “You’ve lived it, now you just need to write it.” She is currently writing the sequel novel.

There are now 3 things I do not understand:
1. #britishpolitics. 2. Anything #arthurshelby says. 3. The end of #peakyblinders

I am currently researching ‘hidden homicides’ that is suspicious deaths that have not been recorded or investigated as homicides. I am interested to hear about such cases. Please retweet to help this study.

For the last 2 of wks I have been struggling to commit time to mediation, so I practice through mindfulness on my dog walk. I go with the intention of picking up as much litter as I can carry. This is done with pleasure, peace and happiness. No tutting, no judgement #Mindfulness


Who can identify with this...I went to one of those dreadful soft play centres today with my niece. Against my better judgement I was dragged onto a trampoline. What happened next will live with me forever. Yes I did a mid air mini wee!!!! Officially old! 😂😂😂
