My debut YA/Crossover novel SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE was published by Simon & Schuster in February 2012, won both the Stockport Mad About Books Award and Oldham Brilliant Books Award, and is being published all over the world. My second YA novel, LITTLE WHITE LIES, is more of a thriller about justice, identity and loyalty. It won the UKYA Blogger Award for "Best Ending" and is out now in the UK, and out tomorrow in the US and Canada.
At the other end of the scale my humorous rhyming FAIRY TALE TWISTS series (Orchard Books) takes a selection of familiar fairytale characters and reveals their version of events - as you've never seen them before!
The first time Lou meets mysterious Christian, she knows he is The One. But Christian is hiding a terrible secret. Why does he clam up every time Lou asks about his past? Why doesn’t he have any family photos, and why does he dye his blond hair black? When Christian’s house goes up in flames, his tires are slashed, and he flees for his life, Lou insists on going with him. But as Christian’s secret is unveiled in front of the whole world, it seems everything he’s ever told Lou is a lie. Can what the media are saying about him really be true? Should Lou trust him? Or is she in grave danger? And what if their accidental meeting wasn’t an accident at all...?
