    Book Launch

    YOU ARE INVITED TO A BOOK LAUNCH. In 2020, I was so excited to have a book launch for Happiness Is Wasted On Me. Covid seemed so far away and I was planning something really spectacular. Of course you all know what happened next. We’re now in 2022 and I have a brand new novel […]

  • Cover reveal!

    Cover reveal!

    At last, I’m able to present the cover artwork for Sadie, Call The Polis. I wanted something that recalled the old Faber & Faber/Flamingo book covers of the late 80s/early 90s, which is an aesthetic I love. Strange, disembodied images, striking bright colour, and bold typography. Those novels looked like CULT FICTION to me, and […]

    Announcing “Sadie, Call The Polis”

    When I first signed a contract for Happiness Is Wasted On Me in 2019, I honestly didn’t expect much to happen for me. In an industry obsessed with debut authors, I’m in a strange position as a rising star who hasn’t really risen. A friend once said I was the best accessory a book launch […]

  • Book Week Scotland!

    Book Week Scotland!

    This week is Christmas for authors, really. I’ve been stuck in my house seething at the Covid-19 lockdown that’s keeping its heel on our throats, but still trying to keep busy. A few weeks ago I had my live digital launch, which mostly went rather well, if you ignore the bit at the start where […]

    The big book launch!

    I can’t launch Happiness Is Wasted On Me at a bookshop, sadly, but safety first and all that jazz. At the same time, I don’t want to sit on a chair looking at a laptop with a nice background. I’m seeing it too much. It’s boring. So… I’ve decided to do something a bit different […]

  • Glowglass

    My new book. Finally. It’s called Glowglass and I’ve been working on it in secret for a while, waiting for today to tell everyone. What can I tell you about it? It’s out in May 2018. It’s weird, of course. I’m working on more YA books and one for adult readers. But I need to […]
