Radical queer non-fiction and fiction, 1990s – now

I am a queer working class author of three books and an eBook as well as a contributor to many others. I've been publishing work since the early 1990s.

I come from punk and my background is in DIY publishing, the books listed here represent a more mainstream approach.

My books so far encompass influential non-fiction on fat politics and culture; life writing; queer narratives; research and scholarship; recovery; pulp fiction and a banned novel. My work is taught in universities. I won an award.

I hope to write more books about my life, dance and therapy. I love writing that is on the edge.
