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, and I don't like to stick to one genre. Thus, you'll find mostly CONTEMPORARY FICTION with/without romance, a little SCI-FI FANTASY of the amateur quantum physics (time travel-ish) variety, and some HISTORICAL FICTION too, all with strong LGBTQ+ representation (i.e. it's about people, people).
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.)
From My Blog
What Adam did, essentially, was rip the door off my closet, sling me over his shoulder and cart me off while I kicked and screamed blue murder. Not literally. I don't think I'd ever screamed in my life. In my old life, that is.
What a terrifying prospect it was, to leave the past behind, let go of my grief, my fear, the sanctuary of Elise, face up to my mother. I loved Adam, but I'd thought I loved Calvin and he'd left me; I'd loved James and he was gone. I wasn't strong enough. But I loved Adam. I wasn't strong enough.
So I ran, and Adam chased me, and he kept chasing until his patience finally gave out, and he delivered an ultimatum. Stop running or lose him, too.
I stopped running.
