Children of Daedala
The sequel to Children of Icarus is out!
Six months alone in the labyrinth has made her strong. But the search for the exit means gambling on an old ‘friend’ and going against everything she’s been taught to survive. You know the labyrinth will have yet more horrors lurking in its depths. You’ve learned few people can be trusted. But freedom is tantalizingly close. Are you ready to take the risk?
I’m beyond thrilled to announce that Children of Icarus has won the 2018 Scottish Teenage Book Prize!!! A huge thank you to the Scottish Book Trust for putting together this amazing award, and thank you so much to all the readers who took part in this. I hope you all enjoyed reading the shortlisted books as much as I enjoyed writing Children of Icarus! I’m honoured to have been in the company of such talented writers, Elizabeth Laird and Danny Weston, and I recommend everyone check out their novels Welcome to Nowhere and The Haunting of Jessop Rise.

Stay tuned for more! I’m off for celebration cake!
A Pest Most Fiendish
Miss Pippa Kipling and her automaton companion, the Porter, exterminate pests of the supernatural variety. What should be a typical job in your average haunted cavern soon derails in an inconveniently undead fashion. Even with the aid of her gadget collection and the Porter’s prowess, this task may prove fatal for Miss Kipling—or worse, rip her petticoat.
