This is a great book! Not only is it an entertaining story, but it’s also a very subtle way to help children understand how things can escalate when you keep a secret... Definitely a book for both parents and children to enjoy.
— Juno Magazine

Other projects

Second Class Irregulars

This mailing list forms a large part of my ongoing artistic practice.

I write, design, print and distribute experimental publications full of humour and weirdness. The forms can range from comics, magazines and short stories to other more esoteric forms, such as sticker albums, packs of gum, and even the odd ransom note.

You can sign up for free and receive them for yourself. 

Some Murders

A collection of crime stories, concentrating less on whodunnit than why. These were mostly written in 2012-13, but occasionally get added to. They're collected in a blog format, so you can subscribe for updates, should they ever happen.
