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.

BUT it doesn't have to be! Just imagine.

    “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.”
