New novel

Just to let you know, I’m currently busy working on my fifth novel.

It’s called Mr Blue Sky and will be released in the UK on Thursday 28 May 2020.

That might sound quite far off, but it’s actually less than seven months away. We’ll be there in no time.

What’s more, it’s already available to pre-order (click HERE). So what are you waiting for?

I’m afraid that’s all I can tell you for now, but I’ll be providing regular updates between now and then on social media and, of course, here on my website. Watch this space.

Book review


Plume by Will Wiles

I was over the moon when I heard Will Wiles had written a new novel.

His first two books, Care of Wooden Floors and The Way Inn, were both instant favourites, despite being wildly different from each other.

The former was like an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm written by Magnus Mills; the latter was pure surrealism, shifting from a satire about business conferences and hotel chains to something more akin to The Matrix or Christopher Nolan’s Inception.

So I wondered where on earth would Wiles go with book three. London, as it turns out, where we see a boozy magazine journalist slowly losing his grip, trapped in a dying industry while being swallowed up by modern city life.    

It’s a relentless and suffocatingly gripping story that’s perfectly observed, sinister and yet also wildly witty. 

Wiles is a very talented writer who really ought to be more widely known. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.

Plume is out now, published by Fourth Estate.

Release day


Today is publication day for my fourth novel, My Sister’s Lies. Yippee!

It’s available in paperback, ebook and audiobook formats from all the usual places.

If you’ve enjoyed any of my other books, then I really hope you’ll try this one too.

And if you haven’t yet read any of my work, then why not start here? It’s a standalone novel, set primarily in Manchester, about sibling rivalry, secrets and lies.

I do hope you enjoy it.
