I have always written stories, but it wasn't until I started the first book in the Solis Invicti series in 2014 that I really became obsessed with writing. I love to read, particularly where the escapism of the story is enhanced with an element of fantasy or science fiction. For me, writing is simply an extension of that journey, but I get to decide what happens next (though it's amazing how often the characters seem to decide for themselves what I'm going to write!).

I love to hear from readers with their comments and feedback on the books, so please do get in touch through my website or via Twitter.

Thank you for reading!

Bound in Silver is the penultimate book in my paranormal romance quadrilogy. It's set in post-apocalyptic London and follows a young woman trying to navigate her way through a new and dangerous world in which a vampiric race called the Silver have taken charge to protect the remaining humans from a zombie-inducing infection. I won't give away any spoilers, but suffice it to say that there's plenty of action, drama and romance along the way.
The other project is something a bit new for me. It's a little less fast-paced and more contemplative. It's perhaps more akin to a compilation of short stories than it is to a conventional novel, ranging across every genre you can think of, all bundled up in a Sci-Fi wrapper. I'm pretty excited about it, but it's taking a back seat until May, by which point Bound in Silver will be published and off my desk.(less)

The Solis Invicti series has a convoluted origin story that began with a scrappy novel and segued seamlessly into a poorly-drawn graphic novel, before finally evolving into the four-book series it is today.

I love the art, and the darkness of the story. The world-building is insanely detailed, which means some info-dumping is necessary, but it’s not done in a tedious way.

I really enjoyed this book. It’s an exaggerated and dark exploration of the world of fashion, with a whole heap of drug culture and eating disorders thrown in. I was faintly horrified by the degree to which much of the darker content resonated with m ...more

“Exhaling heavily, I sank back down into the sofa and picked up the book again. When I'd read the same sentence five times, I decided I wasn't going to be able to lose myself in the story and returned it regretfully to the pile of books on the coffee table.”
Josie Jaffrey, A Bargain in Silver
