I’m the author of three novels so far (well, four, really, but the fourth won’t be out until 2018). This website is packed with info about me and my books. You can read reviews and keep up to date with what’s going on in my writing life by reading my blog – I always aim to post every two or three weeks, but it can be four or five, depending on what’s going on. You can also check out my news and forthcoming events, and if you’re a budding writer yourself, there’s a selection of articles that may be of interest, and I’ll be adding to this regularly. You can also find details of my workshops, critique service, and mentoring packages.

I hope you’ll stay for a bit and have a good look around.
