Penumbra is a clever novel and not what I was expecting based on the previous books by Dan Ackerman that I've read, which admittedly is not their full back catalogue, although I'm working on it. The...

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.

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.)

“My God, why? All these women were put to death, and not just by hanging. Burning, swimming…” Tam looked up, in tears. “That book I was telling you about—the one I read for my Master’s? The author claimed witch hunts were how they disposed of dangerous women—wisewomen, midwives, healers, the ones who refused to do men’s bidding—before the lunatic asylums, and it’s all here.” Tam poked at the page repeatedly. “No evidence, insubstantial evidence, no evidence, no evidence—they were all innocent. All of them.” With a little more care, she flipped to the next page, read it, sat back with a frown, then read it again. “Meredith Moorcroft.” She met Anneka’s gaze. “Coincidence?”
