My first novel, New Pompeii, was included in both the Financial Times’ and Morning Star’s ‘Books of 2016’ lists. The sequel, Empire of Time, was published in June 2017. My near-future crime novel, The Synapse Sequence, was included in The Guardian’s June 2018 best recent science fiction round-up. I have also self-published a children’s e-book and written several short stories.

Shortlisted for Best Newcomer at the British Fantasy Awards, 2017 (for New Pompeii).

2019! - Books I'm Excited About

I've read a few posts now looking back at the great books published in 2018... but I thought I'd look forwards to the ones I'm most excited about coming in 2019!
