Welcome to my website. This is just a little bit of me. I’m an award-winning teen author, experienced school speaker and creative workshop co-ordinator. I have appeared at several festivals as a speaker, including Hay-on-Wye (2016), Oxford (2016), Highgate & Hampstead (2015) and Chichester. And have chaired discussions.
I’m represented by Stephanie Thwaites at Curtis Brown.
My debut YA novel – Seven Days was nominated for the Carnegie Medal (2015/16) and won The Dudley Teen Prize and Wandsworth Amazing Book Award.
One bully. One Target. Two Victims.
”What makes the book interesting is that we see the bullying from both sides. It is a gritty and painful tale – “people always find a weakness,” – but ultimately one of redemption…the characters are strong and the message important.” – Martin Chilton, Culture Editor online at the Daily Telegraph
My second novel Crush was published by Scholastic in February 2016 – Crush
“This sensitive and thoughtful look at the dynamics of abusive relationships presents both victim and aggressor as three-dimensional characters – each with a clear insight into how their personal history affects their current behaviour. Thought-provoking and essential reading.” – Booktrust
