Hello and welcome to my website

I write novels for older children and young adults. Some of them are fantasies and some are thrillers with a historical setting, mixed with suspense and romance. You can read all about me and my books here, starting with my latest novel, The House of Eyes, for Middle Grade readers.

All my books are published by Hodder Children’s Books, and are also available on Kindle or as eBooks.
