Firstborn : The Story of the First Child Born of a Man
How would you feel if you saw a pregnant man - stubble, hairy hands and everything? Disgusted? Curious? Afraid? Because it isn't the natural way of things. It blurs the line between men and women. It could mean the end of humanity as we know it. Actually, though - isn't that a good thing? Equality of the sexes in its truest sense? It means couples like Paul and Francis, very much in love, can have a family of their own - flesh of their flesh, bone of their bones. How would religious groups feel about that? How would society react? I will take you on a journey, into the near future - a future in which one man, Paul Tully, is the first man in the world to become pregnant and bear a son. You'll see, hear and feel his thoughts and experiences - his pain, joy and heartbreak. You'll shudder at the violent opposition, rejoice when things go well...and most of all, you'll understand what it's like to be truly in love, whatever sex you might be.

About G L Sheridan
To date, G.L. Sheridan has published seven books on Amazon Kindle, some humorous, some more dramatic - one or two a bit of both. She is prompted by the question - 'what if?' So in 'Short of a Miracle' she wonders what the world might have been like if Christ had never existed?' 'Spinwissel's Orchard' asks 'what if you had to live amongst all your crazy relatives?' And 'FirstBorn' tells the dramatic story of what might happen if a man could actually become pregnant and give birth to a child. But it's about more than that; it's about love in its tenderest, purest sense...whatever gender you are.
