About me

I write novels for children and young adults.

NIGHT OF THE PARTY is a political thriller and love story for teens, set in a dystopian, near-future England that’s governed by a hard right, ultra nationalist party. It will be published by Scholastic UK on 3 May 2018.

ASSALAY, my fantasy trilogy, was published in German by Erika Klopp Verlag and I’m currently self publishing an English edition. Volumes one and two are already available in paperback and ebook, and I’m working on the English edition of volume three. You can find more information about them, as well as links to sample chapters, here.

As well as novels, I write song lyrics for the Da Capo Music Foundation – you can find more information about the foundation, its work, and some of the pieces I have written for them, here.

I live in London, and love it for its diversity and vibrant life, for its many fascinating hidden corners, for its beauty, and its occasional comic moments –

I enjoy finding different places to write around the city… Here are a few favourites: The Wren, Drink, Shop and Do, The Tabernacle, Foyles and Friends’ House.

And here is my desk at home…
