Fiction

My first novel, Between Boat and Shore, was published by Manifold Press in 2019.

Life in Otter Village is governed by the changing seasons and the will of the Goddess. Trebbi is held in high regard by her community. Guided by the Goddess, the village plants, harvests, and trades with its neighbours. But when strangers arrive by boat in the midst of a storm – on the same day the village leader is found murdered – it brings a time of change for Trebbi, Dru, and the other villagers. Trebbi and Dru must work out who killed Peku while the village listens to the Goddess to guide them to a new leader, and Trebbi must listen to her heart about the visitor Aleuks.

It was reviewed by The Lesbian Review in January 2020. Heather Rose Jones, the reviewer, said: “Within a meticulously researched and depicted setting, Grant has imagined a vision of a society that embraces same-sex relationships and non-binary genders without being an artificial eutopia.”
