I write and illustrate books for children and young adults. My stories are about things I love: kids facing mysteries full of magic and art in amazing places, with secret codes, fantasy, history, mythology, the supernatural and a little bit of romance.

On this website you can learn more about The Blackhope Enigma trilogy, Jet Black Heart and other stories, find out how to invite me to your school, library or festival event, read my blog and watch my videos .


But there’s more! I’ve been an illustrator since before I began writing and you can find out all about my artwork and book illustrations at my other website.


  • Jet Black Heart! I'm pleased to announce that Book Trust has selected Jet Black Heart for the 2015-16 School Library Pack which means it will be sent to 4,700 school libraries in England! Not only that, but it's been shortlisted for the 2016 Coventry Inspiration Book Awards! If you like spine-tingling mysteries, this book is for you. Get more info here! And don't forget: Barrington Stoke also publishes Yellow Rabbit as part of its Little Acorn Reader series of school and library packs, including a free downloadable classroom resource pack. Yellow Rabbit is based on the (almost) true story of my lost yellow rabbit toy, though I did use my artistic license to imagine what adventures it got up to. For more info on how to order Yellow Rabbit for your school or library, click here.
