This is the beginning of how I became a Fag Hag, from surviving childhood in the suburbs: raised by narcissistic, drunken, homophobic parents (and that's their good points) - to developing wonderful friendships with gay men (one gay man in particular). And lesbians. And bisexual, pansexual, transgender people. I could almost have called this book Gay - had it not been for the unfortunate discovery of my own heterosexuality, and the ensuing disaster this has proven to be, hence this is Fag Hag. Where everybody else is getting way more sex. It's twisted, comical and self-deprecating. And almost undeniably, unforgivably true. Cinderella only exists here in the form of a Drag Queen on ecstasy. The straight Cinders burnt to death in an unfortunate wig-cigarette burning incident on her way home from a fancy dress party.

60,000 word literary fiction novella. New Year’s Day in the 1990s. Ellen wakes up with no memories outside a house in Sydney. Ellen’s housemates are only vaguely familiar; conversations with her reflection, Mackenzie, help her recall details of her life. Events that take place include a picnic in the middle of a highway; the prolonged flooding of Sydney; and the hijacking of a NAVY ship in which Ellen’s pet cat Dave sails away. Ellen’s housemates, Renee and Ness, are in a lesbian relationship. Ness has a sex-change and becomes Nathan. Ellen questions her own sexuality in her attraction to another housemate, Karin. Ellen’s friend Indigo habitually vanishes to a parallel world. Indigo’s boyfriend Lucas, a dentistry student, prescribes drugs when Ellen experiences insomnia and paranoia. Still, Ellen/Mackenzie spirals into psychosis, and the house turns into the site of a chaotic festival. In an attempt to escape her insanity, Ellen decides to swim to the horizon. The cat reappears as a hallucinated pirate, Dave Schrodinger. Indigo eventually rescues Ellen. The housemates are cautious when they are out alone due to reports of a serial rapist. They have no idea he is living in their cellar until he attacks Indigo, and she disappears for good. Mackenzie fades away. Ellen and Lucas find glasses which afford a distorted perspective of the world. Lucas becomes addicted to this magical world view, but Ellen believes it is Indigo’s way of telling them she vanished in time. Whether she did is a case of Schrodinger’s cat.
This is the first chapter of a novel I am working on that explores the struggles of a young boy struggling with his gender and how his adopted family deals with him. The main focus of the story will be on Anna as she deals with her school and family life as well as on her mother as she tries to look out for her children as well as balance her work life with her social life and figure out what she really wants to get out of life, what she thinks is the most important thing she can contribute to the world and if she should return to being a bioengineer or stay a journalist. There will be slight elements of science fiction that will be underplayed and relate back to Anna and Lain's life before Anna was adopted, but those elements will remain in the background for the moment as the focus on the story is on the reality of Anna and Lain's situation.
