My first book, TURF,  was about teenage gang violence in London. The Observer called it 'powerful and unsettling'; The Financial Times 'an exhilarating tragic tale and a terrific debut'. It was in the top ten teen/YA books of the year in The Independent and The Daily Telegraph, and the Evening Standard listed it as one of their favourite books about east London. 


I've just finished a thriller for adults set between London and Los Angeles.

I also have a children's detective series in the pipeline; I've led popular writing workshops for teenagers, and I work as a content writer, editor and blogger.
