Planning to announce in 2024

My current novel in progress is a timely, ultimately life-affirming coming-of-age, upmarket literary novel that will, i hope, leave you just a little breathless and be etched into your favourite-books-I've-read memory bank.

- A near future thriller that won't put you down...

'Kickass and engaging...fab characters' - Hannah Kates, author, editor, ghostwriter

'Extraordinary'- Mark Stay, author, screenwriter, editor, podcaster 

'WOW' - Phyllida Shrimpton, author

If that weren't enough... 

Top secret alert - involving a 2D man shaking rain from his umbrella. 

Seriously, when a novel's in the making, it's not pretty. 

That's what editing is for. 


'Funny as a funny bone in a corpse: it's there, but you know you shouldn't laugh at it.'

All will be revealed at the opportune whasaname.
