Written by our founder Stolen Moments is a story of love, passion and betrayal: Zara is a young twenty something that comes from a broken and hectic home. Steve is forty and trapped in a loveless, sexless marriage. Two worlds which should never have collided become linked when the two meet online and decide to have an affair to escape their own reality but soon find sex isn’t as black and white as they’d hoped.

Another written by our founder, Skin Deep is based on true events and explores the story of Ava, your typical 22 year old: bright, sarcastic, independent and loves a laugh with her mates. But behind the closed doors of her flat Ava is controlled by S.E.A.N who is both seductive and destructive and completely in her head. What starts off as small nit picking ends up with Ava completely isolating herself from the outside world because of her ever building insecurities putting her life in danger. Can she ever shake off S.E.A.N’s hold or with it completely take over her life?
