Email me when back in stock


Robbie Stebson is a young man in his twenties, a hopeless romantic; struggling to allow himself to love his own sex. Very nearly married, he falls for Tyrone, a young Irishman. Robbie, an enthusiastic teacher of English, is horrified that some of his pupils are being emotionally abused by a senior teacher. Robbie feels he has to make a stand; thus embroiling himself in a maelstrom of bullying, blackmail and the attempted murder of his lover.

Robbie's Story tells of his dysfunctional family, friendships and the betrayals he suffers; as well as his promiscuity, trawling gay bars and clubs with a driven need. And yet throughout, there is the happy-ever-after dream he believes can never come true.

He lives in West Yorkshire with his gay partner.
