Welcome to my website


Hi! Below is a picture of the desk where I’ve written many of my books. To take this photo, I had to squeeze right up into one corner of my tiny office:

I’ve had a big tidy-up. Normally, my desk is piled high with all kinds of rubbish. Please ignore the half-eaten cheese sandwich.

You can find my books at…

…most online booksellers, or at your nearest bookshop – if they haven’t got the title(s) you want on the shelf, just ask and they can order it for you.

The Book Depository (often cheaper than Amazon)
Amazon UK
The Hive (the independent bookseller network)
WHSmith (limited selection)
ebooks at Kobo

Ebook editions are often cheaper than the printed versions, sometimes much cheaper. You can read ebooks on your phone or tablet, you don’t need an ereader.

When I last counted them up (Autumn 2014) there had been 71 separate titles with my name on the cover, since my very first book appeared in 1997 (more if you include various ebook editions and online stuff as well.) At a rough estimate, they total a little over 1,000,000 words. That’s more than Shakespeare, but far fewer than Dickens!

I’m currently working on:

  • A couple of books similar to this one.
  • The fourth title in the SWARM series.

My latest books are:

Patron of Reading

perrywoodPOR_seal_120x120_blackI’m delighted to say that I’m currently Patron Of Reading at Perry Wood Primary School in Worcester. I made my first visit to the school on 22 October, and I was e-n-o-r-m-o-u-s-l-y impressed by the thoughtful questions each year group asked me, and the creative ideas they came up with. I can’t wait to go back!
