In 2017, I signed my first book deal, with Little, Brown. Amazing. It (and I, to be fair) produced two novels, comedies (more or less): The Last Romeo (2018), and The Magnificent Sons (2020).

In 2020, I signed another book deal, again with Little Brown. The first novel from this new deal, The Fake-Up, came out April 2022.

You can find my books wherever you prefer to buy them. I’m not fussy, so long as you buy them!

The Fake-Up

The cover of The fake-Up, featuring the title of the book in large letters, with a wilting bouquet of tulips imposed over the top. My name is above, in pink script.

 

TWO EXES. ONE BIG SECRET. LET THE GAMES BEGIN…

Dylan and Flo are in love. The only trouble is, they broke up months ago and everyone was delighted for them.

At first, it’s exciting sneaking around, hiding from disapproving friends, climbing through bedroom windows to avoid family, and concocting hilarious disguises. It’s like Romeo and Juliet. With more sex and less poison.

But soon it becomes harder to separate truth from lies. Dylan and Flo are in way over their heads, and the games have only just begun . . .

It’s out now in hardback, audiobook, and ebook. (The audiobook is really terrific and once more read by the very talented Joe Jameson.)

The Magnificent Sons

At 29, Jake D’Arcy has finally got his life just right. Job with prospects: check. Steady girlfriend: check. Keeping his exhausting, boisterous family at bay: check. So why isn’t he happier?

When his confident, much-adored younger brother Trick comes out as gay to a rapturous response, Jake realises he has questions about his own repressed bisexuality, and that he can’t wait any longer to find his answers.

As Trick begins to struggle with navigating the murky waters of adult relationships, Jake must confront himself and those closest to him. He’s beginning to believe his own life could be magnificent, if he can be brave enough to make it happen . . .

Lovely. It’s very good, I promise. And here is the cover:

The Last Romeo

James is 34 and fed up. His six-year relationship with Adam has imploded, he hates his job making up celebrity gossip, and his best friend Bella has just announced she’s moving to Russia.

Adrift and single in loved-up London, James needs to break out of his lonely, drunken comfort zone. Encouraged by Bella, he throws himself headlong into online dating, blogging each encounter anonymously as the mysterious Romeo.

After meeting a succession of hot/weird/gross men, James has fans and the validation he’s always craved. But when his wild night with a closeted Olympian goes viral and sends his Twitter-fame through the roof, James realises maybe, in the search for happy-ever-after, some things are better left un-shared. Seriously, wherefore art thou Romeo
