Author, publisher, social scientist. My academic specialism is gender and sexual politics and identity, so you can expect this to crop up now and then in my writing too! Not in an "in your face" kind of way - subtlety wins hearts and minds.I live in Lancashire, UK, with family and rescued dogs. It's green and pleasant, and we get long, long, lovely perfumed days in late spring / early summer. My favourite place in the world is Watergate Bay, Cornwall, but I haven't travelled much. The most amazing thing I've ever experienced is the call to prayer at 11 p.m. on a terrace in Istanbul. Goosebumps+ and I'm an atheist!I write realist, character-based/driven fiction - mostly contemporary, some (M/M & F/M) romance and a bit of sci-fi fantasy (light). Basically, I write about life. I've written a few stand-alone novels and short stories, but my main work is the Hiding Behind The Couch series, which these days I'm referring to as a literary soap opera. Each novel/novella concludes, but there are always a few loose ends to be picked up and threaded on to the next instalment. There are longer threads and shorter threads.Novels and short novellas are stand-alone and can be read individually, or as part of the series.I know readers find it hard to navigate a series, so here it is in order (December, 2014):1. Beginnings (novella)2. Hiding Behind The Couch (book #1)3. No Time Like The Present (book #2)4. The Harder They Fall (book #3)5. Crying in the Rain (short novel)6. First Christmas (novella)7. In The Stars Part I (book #4)8. Breaking Waves (novella)9. In The Stars Part II (book #5)10. A Midnight Clear (novella)11. Red Hot Christmas (novella)12. Two by Two (2015)I also run a socialist (profit share) independent publishing company: Beaten Track Publishing.

DNF at 57% - Yeah this is not working for me at all. I love Patrick to death but the side story just is not worth it for me.This is my issue and therefore no rating will be given.

This was absolutely fabulous. Falling in love amidst the terrors of WWII, knowing their love is criminal in the eyes of the law, but finding support in amazing friends and family members, Jim and Arty do what they have to do to stay together. Utterly brilliant in the emotional writing, this took my ...

It had some mediocre reviews, but was free on Amazon, so I decided to try it out. And, boy, did I like it! I don't know how and why, but I felt with the protag over the whole book. His feelings were so clear and loud, and the whole way he changed his life, the way his relationships to basically ...
