Welcome

. . . to my website!

My fourth Young Adult novel, 'THE BOY WHO LIED' published by Macmillan Children's Books, is OUT NOW.

You'll find lots of info here about '928 Miles from Home,' 'A Seven-Letter Word,' and, of course, my debut novel SMART - now nominated for 25 UK book awards (plus one Italian!), including the Federation of Children's Book Groups Prize 16, Carnegie Prize 15 and the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 15 and masses of fantastic regional awards that mean so much because lots are voted for by the children themselves.

SMART is WINNER of TEN awards including the Leeds Book Award 15, the St Helen's Book Award (BASH) 15, the Tower Hamlets Book Award 15, the EMBA Geoffrey Trease Children's Book Award 15, The Brilliant Book Award 2016, 1066 Schools Book Award 2016, The Grampian Children's Book Award 2016, the North Herts Schools' Book Award 2016, 'Spellbinding' Dorset Book Award 2016 and 'The Read' Stockport Schools Book Award 2016.

A SEVEN-LETTER WORD has been nominated for four awards, including the Carnegie Prize 17 and is winner of the St Helen's Book Award 2017 (BASH 17)
