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).

(I don't look at my Author Dashboard very often, so hadn't seen it appear!) No, my third book is a stand alone science fiction novel. I will be posting the details on my blog later, but the working title is "The Synapse Sequence". Aiming for release in summer 2018. Thanks, Dan.(less)

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!

Just received a £50 reward voucher from work to spend in various shops, restaurants etc. Scrolled down an uninspiring list of outlets.......then found out that I could spend it on National Book Tokens!! That should help my 2019 Reading Challenge.
