"This is the best book I've read in a long time, and I've read a lot of good books."
Described by one reader as 'chick lit with balls,' this is a romance with an unusual twist. My third novel, published by Green Sunset Books in 2012, it's a fun-filled frolic through sexual identity and the difficulties of dating.
I gave a reading at booQfest 2012, Northampton's first LGBT book festival, where I rubbed shoulders with fellow authors Adrian Magson, Paul Magrs, Jane Lovering, Will Davis and V.G.Lee, to name but a few. You can read all about booQfest on my blog.
Phoebe Gelber’s life is pretty much planned out. She’s going to marry her long-term boyfriend Mark. They will have children together and live happily ever after. Until Mark unceremoniously shatters her dreams in a cubical of the women’s toilets after a boozy night out.
Life and sanity on the rocks, Phoebe is thrown into turmoil when she meets dishy George McCally. A whole new world opens up to her, one that will challenge both her own prejudices and those of the people around her.
Is love ever enough to overcome a lifetime of conditioning?
Orla, Phoebe’s best friend since childhood, doesn’t seem to think so. Their longstanding friendship is in danger of collapsing under the strain of intolerance.
Meanwhile, ex-boyfriend Mark turns up on her doorstep with a drug habit and a change of attitude. Phoebe sees a side of him she never knew before.
The death of a mutual friend causes everyone to evaluate existing and new relationships. While some strengthen, others cease to exist. Ultimately, it is up to Phoebe to follow her heart and take a brave step towards an unconventional future.
