possible, yes. Just use half turns for each primary(or secondary) and wire them in series

Furthermore, if you connect primaries in series, you can connect secondaries in paralell, and you can even use two sets of output inductors and diodes without worrying about current sharing. The series primary connection will ensure that the same current flows through both secondaries.
