Welcome to my website

As a brief aside, teachers/ parents/ other grown-ups may find this recent article in the Guardian enlightening.

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 them for you.

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: you can either use free apps from Amazon or Kobo, or if you want something more flexible, an excellent reading app for Android is Moon+ Reader (which I use myself) or for iOS there’s Marvin.

When I last counted them up (Spring 2014) there had been 66 separate titles with my name on the cover, since my very first book appeared in 1997 (over 90 if you include various ebook editions and online stuff as well.)


I’m currently working on:

  • A really gruesome horror story for teenagers.
  • A retelling of the ancient Greek legend of Icarus, for schools.
  • A couple of books similar to this one.
  • The fourth title in the SWARM series.

My latest books are:

I’m on Twitter, but not on any other social media site – anyone with my name on Facebook, LinkedIn, Goodreads etc etc is not me.
