I still have a couple of days available for WBD Week 2014, the week commencing 3rd March 2014. 

I also have some days still available in the weeks before and after. 

But these dates are getting booked up FAST!

Please don't delay if you would like to book an author visit for your Infant, Primary or Junior school. 

I am also available to take workshops with Year 7 & 8 at secondary schools!

Happy New Year everyone! 

2013 was an excellent year for me as a writer. After a long wait Jacob's War was published to a really great reception. I finished the fourth 'Noah' book, which should be out very soon. I have finished Sam Marsh and the Lunar War draft one. And a new novel with the working title 'The boy with two names' is almost complete!


In 2013 I also visited more schools than ever before, I did five radio interviews and took part in the amazing Manx Lit Fest!


But I'm determined that 2014 is going to be even bigger and better! A number of schools have already made bookings for author visits as has the Ryedale Literary Festival for the autumn. Noah Ramsbottom and the Runaway Sphinx is due to be published very soon and I'm hoping to get the research for a new book underway! 


I would like to say a huge 'thank you' to everyone who has supported my work in 2013 and I look forward to meeting loads more of you this year! 


HAPPY 2014!
