TUCK TO THE FUTURE is a sci-fi time travel adventure about a drag queen who finds HERSELF plunged into a dystopian future after a terrible 'accident' on stage. 
"a sci-fi phantasmagoria that’s out, proud, and laugh-out-loud"
IRISH TIMES
Our unlikely heroine finds the world has changed utterly after an uprising of crazed, violent drag queens led by their sinister leader - The One. Fanny soon finds herself mixed up with a group of freedom fighters and faces deadly robots, crazed scientists and horrifying hungry mutants in her quest to get back home.
It also has some underlying themes driving our characters. The story touches upon how their formative years growing up gay in the 1980's under the shadow of widespread homophobia and the HIV crisis has affected their lives and the decisions they've made. 
This is the the first published story written by me. It is very different and hopefully you've not read anything much like it before.
This is the first part of my Drag Uprising series.
