Reveries - available now on Amazon!

Sod’s law takes no prisoners. Their love organs thwack into action. They are hopeless, rendered subordinate to the whims of fancy. Turbulence and extravagance, ecstasy and fantasy, drunken feuds and bloodied knuckles – these are the things they enjoy watching on television. They love, they fuck, they do it all and with each other. They sleep nose to nose or brow to brow, depending on the day of the week. They are organised in their love. Regular passion is not enough.

 
Richard is a victim of tempestuous bowels, Nicole of delayed tooth eruption. After fractious and bizarre childhoods, they meet and engage in a fractious and bizarre relationship. It ends and they lead separate lives, hers fractious, his bizarre. Unknown to Richard, Nicole gives birth to twins. Boy, girl; deluded, difficult. Boy runs away, girl is a maladaptive daydreamer. An all-consuming addiction to tantric self-pleasure means that Richard, too, is miles away, in a world of his own. It falls to a private detective with questionable morals, Ronald, to pick up the pieces.
