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?


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 LGBTSQ (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, specifically of identity politics and the radical deconstruction of gender and sexuality. In non-jargon, imagine a world where your gender isn't on your birth certificate, you can marry who you like, wear what you like, cats and dogs, living together, mass hysteria... BUT it doesn't have to be! Just imagine.

No Filter - Loaded Banana #RainbowSnippets #LGBTQIA

Snippet #2 from No Filter - another Checking Him Out / Hiding Behind The Couch crossover (the first being Hiding Out), featuring Matty (CHO) and Libby (HBTC).I should say deliberate cross-over...


Of The Bauble

My eyes shot open. I looked down into my lap and couldn't quite believe what I saw there. The bauble was glowing! I tried to move my legs to flip it onto the floor, but I couldn't, although I also realised that I didn't want to. At first, I thought it was my imagination, as the blue swirling glow momentarily became brighter and then dimmed away to the tiniest speck. Nervously, I caught hold of the little hook and lifted the bauble to eye level. It was the strangest light, like the blue of a hot gas flame, and it seemed to swirl faster the longer I studied it. The heat travelled up the hook to my finger; I swapped hands, unable to put it down.
