About Me

I'm a novelist and screenwriter with a chequered past. I've written for footballing and motoring magazines, childbirth videos and mail order catalogues. I've DJ'ed at illegal raves in London, been told off by a children's TV presenter during a studio debate, and I was the Australasian face of a series of TV commercials for a cleaning product. All of which has given me a thorough grounding in the ridiculous, and has helped me write funny stuff. I write the Jodie 'Nosey' Parker series for HarperCollins, because I love thinking about Cornwall, food, and murdering people (not necessarily in that order).

I'm represented by Lina Langlee at the North Literary Agency.
