About & Contact

I grew up in North Yorkshire and currently live in Leigh-on-Sea in Essex with my daughter, where, between school runs, I variously tramp along the seafront, sit hunched over a computer screen, or loiter in the local library (you should go there; it’s really quite good).

In 2010 I spent four months in Australia researching the novel that would become LITTLE EXILES, which was published by Harper Collins in February 2013.  GINGERBREAD, set in the wild lands bordering Poland and Belarus, was published the following year. My latest novel, THE TOYMAKERS will be published by Penguin Random House in 2018.
