Following a career as a journalist, I have written three books for young people. My first two novels were contemporary/magical realism stories for age 10-14. Who Framed Klaris Cliff? won the North Herts Book Award for 2015. My second, Swan Boy, was one of the Guardian’s Best New Reads for this year and has been listed for several prizes including the CILIP Carnegie Medal. My third book, due to be published in the summer of 2017 is a literary dark YA/Crossover. I’m also a story mentor, taking creative writing into schools in Brighton.
