Introduction Maturing like a strong stilton and just on the wrong side of 40, I grew up on one of the roughest estates in Manchester. But with the gift of a good brain and the ability to talk rubbish in several different languages, I ended up with a degree from Cambridge University in German and Dutch. I have been a punk, a trainee rock star, a pretend artist, a wannabe renovator of houses and a professional fundraiser but now I write novels for children and adults. I am represented by Caspian Dennis at Abner Stein. My general author's website is . Please drop by!
