- Me, Myself, and I
- I write books for/about young people. My first novel – MARTYN PIG – was published in 2001, & my eighth – KILLING GOD – is published by Penguin in June this year (see my blog for an extract) . Other books I've written include: LUCAS, KISSING THE RAIN, CANDY, THE ROAD OF THE DEAD, BLOODLINE, I SEE YOU BABY (co-written with Catherine Forde), BEING & BLACK RABBIT SUMMER. They're books about real things, real lives (with occasional touches of other stuff), and although I wouldn't describe them as crime fiction, they often have crime fiction/thrillery elements in them. I like to write about the darker side of things, & I'm not known for my happy endings.
