His debut novel The Chernobyl Privileges will be published by Roundfire Books in 2018. A finalist in the Impress Prize for New Writing, it has been called "a compelling, well-wrought and sharply intelligent book" (Nicholas Royle) that "brings together the personal and political, the spectre of Chernobyl and the continuing controversy of Britain’s nuclear deterrent" (Andrew Crumey).
