I had a tough time at school - for lots of reasons, but the one that's relevant here is competitiveness, and not my own. By the time I figured out what the problem was, I was in my mid-twenties and...

Checking Him Out is LGBTQIA romance (Books 1–3 inclusive: M/M romance; Book 4: bi/queer romance), so fair warning is given here about the sexual content in most of the instalments. If you prefer contemporary, non-explicit stuff, Hiding Out and The Making Of Us are both non-explicit, or 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.
The Making Of Us - book four - Jesse and Leigh's story.
Seeds of Tyrone (co-written with Raine O'Tierney) is a series of gay/bi 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, interdisciplinary - identity politics, gender and sexuality, social/political psychology; ethnographer, deconstuctionist, discourse-analytical...free-floating, unapologetic in-betweeny.
It's my fence, and I'll sit on it if I like. (The personal is political.)

"Guess I'm too big for the swings now," Lois said with an airy sigh. "Being nearly thirty and all."
"You took that to heart, eh?" Rob glanced sideways at her, and she turned her nose up. "How old d'you think it makes me feel?"
"You're not old," Lois argued.
"Hmm. You haven't met Travis, have you?"
"Yeah. Nice guy."
"But you don't like him."
Rob weighed it up, as he'd been doing ever since Zoë and Travis got together. "I don't not like him. It's tricky, you know?"
