Hiding Behind The Couch Series

 
 

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?

Fiction

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 LGBTQ+ (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!

Not Fiction

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.)

Review: Drumbeat by A.M. Leibowitz

I realised today that I still haven't reviewed Drumbeat, which is shocking. It's been out for... [goes to look...cough] a while. OK, September 1st, it was released, and it was a while before that...

"You're my dad," she said. "When I said real, I didn't mean it like you're not, you know?" She put her fork down and fake-sobbed into her hand. "I'm so messing this up."

"You so are," Kris agreed.

"Sorry."

"Missy."

"Forget I said anything, OK?"

"Missy, look at me."

Turning half towards him, she shut one eye and grimaced.

He sighed and shook his head. "Real dad or not, I know you're mine when you only open your mouth to change feet."

"You're not mad?"

"I'm not mad."
