My first novel, Stolen, was published in 2013 and was one of the winners of the first Northern Crime Competition. I also won a Northern Writers’ Time to Write Award in 2010 for the same book. My second novel, Gone, was released in January 2015 and my third, Tell Me Lies in March 2016, both by Mulholland.
I’ve recently finished the fourth Gardner and Freeman book as well as a stand alone thriller, and I’m currently working on a screenplay as well as plotting a couple more books.
I have a degree in Film and Media from the University of Sunderland and an MA in Creative Writing from Teesside University. As I collect courses like other people collect stamps, I also have qualifications in Film and TV Production and Music Management, and have done several short courses including Crime Scene Investigation and Criminology.
I have lived and worked in Holland and London, and in 2002 I travelled around the USA on Greyhound bus. One day I will write about that.
