A sense of place has a strong influence on my work, and I am interested in exploring character in the context of the surrounding landscape.
The Dreamcatcher Chronicles
I’m currently working on a series of YA novels, The Dreamcatcher Chronicles. The first in the series, The Dreamcatcher’s Apprentice will be published towards the end of 2015. You can read the first chapter here.
I enjoy writing short stories for children and adults. One of my favourites, Dreams of Horses, was written for a project called Throwaway Lines. Each of the writers who took part in the project was each given a handwritten note on a scrap of paper (which had either been lost or discarded by its owner, and picked up by London-based writer and project co-ordinator Andy Hayes) to use as the starting point for a story.
