    That’s not me. 
    I’m just hidden in this body.

     

    Publishing 4th July. Available for pre-order.


    Ros has finally found Eddy, the girlfriend they’ve always wanted. But Ros can’t tell her the truth: that Ros is trans, and wants to live in a male body. 

    After a party Ros’s classmates “discover” they are a lesbian – but the inaccurate label is hurtful. 

    Ros knows only one thing will make them happy. But telling the world a truth you’ve hidden all your life is scary. Maybe it would be easier to live a lie? The homophobic comments are already bad enough. 

    And if the truth comes out – what is Ros’s next move? Hormones? Surgery? And what will happen when Eddy finds out? 

    Warning: Self-Harm

    Chris is a non binary writer who lives in Dalkey, south county Dublin with their long term partner and a feisty little mini Schnauzer called Oti. Being non binary has been a lifelong battle to be seen for the whole person, rather than the outer skin. Chris’s interest in alternative medicine, especially shamanism, has stemmed from a search for modalities that can heal at a deeper level. They are a qualified shamanic practitioner and Reiki Master. Chris has written fiction for adults and an autobiography. However, Chris has worked in education for most of their career and finds writing for the young adult audience a way of using all their experience in the classroom.
