To misquote Goodfellas, as far back as I can remember I wanted to be a writer. I got my first typewriter for my seventh birthday and have been hard at work ever since. At first I wrote stories about my teddies going into space, or Long-Nosed Tree Snakes named Larry. And several decades later my ambition remains the same: to tell stories that excite me about characters I love. I write the sorts of books I want to read: fantastical adventures packed with peril and action, set in vivid worlds that come alive on the page.

My first book The Future King: The Waking World came out in 2014, followed by three instalments in the Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space series. I’m now working on a number of projects including a futuristic adventure series called FloodWorld and a series of Warhammer Adventures for Games Workshop.
