Hello, and welcome to my website! I’m Jacquelyn Middleton, author of London Belongs to Me, a contemporary coming-of-age novel. Thank you so much for stopping by.
London Belongs to Me is a story about friendship, believing in yourself, and finding where you belong. It celebrates fandoms, theatre, and diversity, and it’s also a love letter to my favourite city.
I know every street, and all the places mentioned in the novel quite well, having visited London too many times to count. I love this city so much, my heart aches when it’s time to leave. Flying home to Toronto is always met with an immediate plan to figure out when I can return.
Along with Lucy, Freddie, Harry, and Mark, the city is a vibrant co-star in Alex Sinclair’s journey in London Belongs to Me. If you fall in love—even just a little bit—with gorgeous London, I’ll consider my novel a success.

my debut novel
Your flight is now boarding! Join Alex Sinclair for a life-changing trans-Atlantic journey. London Belongs to Me is a coming-of-age story about friendship, following your dreams, and learning when to let go … and when to hang on.
A New City. A New Start. Same Old Demons …
Meet Alex, a recent college graduate from Tallahassee, Florida in love with London, pop culture, and comic cons. It’s not easy being twenty-one-years-old, and Alex has never been the most popular girl. She’s an outsider, a geeky fangirl … with dreams of becoming a playwright in a city she’s loved from afar, but never visited.
Fleeing America after a devastating betrayal, she believes London is where she’ll be understood, where she belongs. But Alex’s past of panic attacks and broken relationships is hard to escape. When her demons team up with a jealous rival determined to destroy her new British life, Alex begins to question everything: her life-long dream, her new friends, and whether London is where she truly belongs.
