New books on the horizon?
- For the first time in two or three years, I don't have any imminent new releases to put in this space, which isn't to say I have no upcoming releases.
- Goth of Christmas Past is in its final pre-publication stages, but it's not later in 2018 (I might release it in October).
- The Lost Mitten (a children's story in the 'classic' style, to be released under the pen name 'J.S. Morley') should also be out towards the end of the year.
- I'm nearly done with writing Tabula Rasa (Gray Fisher #2), which should have been out last year. I'll release it as soon as it's ready - hopefully June 2018.
- As well as the above, I'm working on Alumni (HBTC #8) as and when I can, and a number of other smaller projects. More on those to follow.
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. 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.
The Making Of Us - book four - Jesse and Leigh's story.
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
The sheen of their hair, the pale, smooth creaminess of their skin, the cheeky way they rolled their eyes, the hugeness of their pupils when they were scared or excited, the velvety softness of their lips. OK, I may have added my own details about their lips, but if I'd shut my eyes, I'd have heard, felt...I don't know...telepathically sensed their presence. Leigh had some kind of power over me beyond anything I'd experienced before.
