An anthology of excerpts and short stories on the theme of ‘love against the odds’, featuring my short story TUMBLING.
I’ve just sort of assumed our Venn diagram would be busy in the overlap. Then we’d hold hands, and gradually as we talked the two circles would slide closer and closer to fit exactly on top of one another, like a lid on a tin. Perfect match. Love.
But our interconnections are basically Sherlock and a declared fondness for girlkissing.
I know she likes Galaxy Quest because she quoted Galaxy Quest one time, but then, who hasn’t? What if deep down she likes ponies and death metal and people with non-broken endocrine systems? What if she only dates girls who can eat dairy products while mountaineering?

My Invisible Boyfriend
15-year-old Heidi is stuck at the boarding school for drop-outs where her parents teach, with only a cake-shop Saturday job to escape to. She’s always been the new, odd, geeky kid – so when her coupled-up friends assume she’s got a secret boyfriend, she can’t resist going along with the idea.
Enter Gingerbread Ed, a sexy lovemuppet with a motorbike. He’d be perfect – if only he was real, instead of based on Mycroft Christie, her favourite time-travelling TV detective. But now her friends are sending him all kinds of revealing messages… Will all those little white lies destroy Heidi’s chance at real romance – and all her real friendships with it?
