My debut novel DODGER tells the continuing story of Jack Dawkins, the Artful Dodger from OLIVER TWIST. It is published by Heron Books and available now in paperback or ebook. The sequel, DODGER OF THE DIALS was released in hardback and ebook in June 2014.
I'm represented by United Agents and my agent is Jon Elek. My Film/TV agent is Yasmin McDonald also at United Agents.
I studied literature at the Open University and have since completed an MSt in Creative Writing at Oxford University. On graduating I won the AM Heath Prize for prose fiction for the first five chapters of DODGER.
I also writes short stories and in 2011 won the Fiction Desk Writer's Award for my story `Jaggers & Crown' which was published in the anthology,`All These Little Worlds'. My story `Bitter' was published in the Failed Novelists Anthology 2011.
I'm writer-in-residence at Gad's Hill School in Rochester, former home of Charles Dickens. I recently launched DODGER OF THE DIALS there on the 144th anniversary of Dickens' death. In July 2014 I gave a talk called `Dickens and the Dodger' at the Dickens Museum in London.Â
I've written articles for websites such as Historical Honey, The Fiction Desk, Context Travel, City Read and others.
I also write for Portal Entertainment on a number of their immersive media thrillers. Details of those projects to follow.
