My third novel, The Day I Was Erased, is published today! If you have a lovely independent bookshop near you then why not pop along and see if they have an exclusive ‘paw print’ edition? (photo was taken at the gorgeous Chicken & Frog Bookshop in Brentwood, Essex. They will also post copies.)

A little bit about the plot…


Maxwell is always in trouble. He’s a menace to his teachers and big sister, but has a softer side too: he rescued his dog, Monster, from being run over and checks on his elderly neighbour, Reg, after school. But one day, Maxwell finds himself erased from his life: it’s as if he’s never been born…


Writing a book means being part of a team and I’m incredibly lucky to have some brilliant people beside me. Huge thanks to my agent Adam Gauntlett, my brilliant editor Lauren Fortune, ┬áthe amazing design, marketing, publicity, copy-editing, proof-reading and publishing world of Scholastic and huge thanks to the supremely talented illustrator, Mike Lowery, who has created such brilliant artwork.

I really hope you enjoy this new book!

Happy reading and happy 2019!
