Welcome

Hello!

I write stories . . . and if you’ve found your way here, I guess you must read stories.

I’m very grateful that you read. I also want to share something with you: it is my job to try to wrestle characters, ideas and feelings into this thing we call a story - but you make the stories come alive. It is an act of creation, to be a reader. And your creation is utterly original.

Writing is always a challenge – and I think reading is too. A story invites us both to take a journey.

So come on, let’s go . . .

LATEST BOOKThe Storm

THE END OF THE WORLD WAS JUST THE BEGINNING . . .

In this sequel to The Rain Ruby's fight for survival continues in a world where water is deadly.

"I'll tell you a weird thing about apocalypses - a thing I didn't even know until I was in one: they seem pretty bad, don't they?

Well, take it from me: they can always get worse . . ."

JUST ONE DROP WILL KILL YOU

I will try to be honest and tell everything as it was, but I will not swear, because my mum hated swearing. I hope you’ll understand. I’ll write something beautiful instead. I’ll write Butterfly. For my mum.

Everything is Butterfly. The whole world is Butterfly, because there’s something in the rain that kills you if you get just one drop on your skin. I’ve survived this long – I don’t know how. I’ve got really good at watching the sky.

And the worst thing? I’m stuck with someone I wouldn’t kiss if he was the last boy on earth.

Which he kind of is.

Butterfly. Butterfly. Butterfly.
