Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book...
I'm going to be making the most of July's CampNaNoWriMo to continue work on The WAG and The Scoundrel. It's a crime/mystery/romance novel and an off-shoot of Hiding Behind The Couch, featuring Gray Fisher (from In The Stars Part II / Two By Two) and Will Richards (from Breaking Waves / In The Stars Part II)
Thanks to Bike Book Reviews for my cover reveal ♥.
I'm astonished, overwhelmed, grateful, bedazzled, honoured and a thousand other things I can't even find the words for right now, that When Skies Have Fallen won the Lambda Literary Award (Lammy) for Gay Romance.
When Skies Have Fallen is a historical romance, written as part of Don't Read in the Closet, 2015. The ebook is free, and you can also buy the paperback.
Three brothers: doting dads, dealing with the everyday challenges of fatherhood.
Mike Jeffries has one priority: his six-month-old daughter, Bethan. Andy Jeffries has finally found the perfect challenge: keeping the woman he loves satisfied and raising their twin daughters, Rosie and Sorsha. Dan Jeffries is about to become a father for the second time, and he's terrified, not that he's the kind of man to admit it.
Those Jeffries Boys is a novel-length character special. Part of Hiding Behind The Couch series.
Checking Him Out is a gay romance (M/M romance, if you like), so fair warning is given here about the sexual content. If you prefer contemporary, non-explicit stuff, why not try Hiding Behind The Couch?
Checking Him Out - book one - is available for free!
Checking Him Out For the Holidays - a short festive novella
Hiding Out - a novella - George, Josh and Libby from Hiding Behind The Couch meet Matty and Noah from Checking Him Out
Taking Him On - book two - Noah and Matty's story.
Checking In - book three - More antics with Sol and Adam.
Seeds of Tyrone (cowritten with Raine O'Tierney) is a series of gay romances, so again, fair warning is given here about the sexual content.
Leaving Flowers - book one - Patrick and Aidan's story
Where the Grass is Greener - book two - Chancey and Seamus's story
Christmas Craic and Mistletoe - book three - Paulo/Harrison's and Tom/Michael's stories
HIDING BEHIND THE COUCH is a series of novels and short stories about a group of nine friends - The Circle - who first met at school.
They've been described as the literary equivalent of 'Take That' - there's a character to suit everyone.
Why not dip into the story and see what you think?
I write character-driven stories, but they can be about ANYTHING and I don't like to stick to one genre. Thus, there's some CONTEMPORARY ROMANTIC FICTION that's LGBTSQ (i.e. it's about people, people!), plus a little SCI-FI FANTASY of the amateur quantum physics (time travel-ish) variety and a little HISTORICAL FICTION too!
I'm a social scientist, specifically of identity politics and the radical deconstruction of gender and sexuality. In non-jargon, imagine a world where your gender isn't on your birth certificate, you can marry who you like, wear what you like, cats and dogs, living together, mass hysteria... BUT it doesn't have to be! Just imagine.
From My Blog
“Alright, bro? We’ve got a problem.”
Andy lifted Rosie’s bottom and slid the clean nappy underneath. “Can’t you start a convo with ‘how’s it hanging’ or something?”
“Alright, bro? How’s it hanging? We’ve got a problem.”
Andy gave up. “What this time? You need me to fly out to Tristan da Cunha?”
“Not who, what.”
“You lost me.”
“No surprises there.”
