I am a novelist and an Associate Professor in Creative Writing.
I have published seven novels. My first four were crime novels (Macmillan). My next was the literary novel, Blackheath (Myriad Editions, 2016). 'Fresh, honest, very funny'. Rachel Cusk.
I have a six book contract with HarperCollins to write novels for younger readers. Boy Underwater (2018) was nominated for the Carnegie Medal and Branford Boarse awards. To date it has won The Stockport Schools Book Prize and the Oxfordshire Schools Book prize. It was Waterstones Book of the Month and one of The Guardian Books of the Year 2018. You Won't Believe This came out in July 2019. My novels have been widely translated, and dramatised for BBC Radio 4. I hold a Phd in Creative Writing from Brunel University.
