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.

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.)

"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.
"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."
