The Secret of Haven Point
Publishing February 2022 from Puffin books, part of Penguin Random House UK, THE SECRET OF HAVEN POINT is a lyrical voice-led middle grade novel set on the north east coast, in a lighthouse, with a captain with a kitten in his beard, and a gang of disabled friends having a cracking adventure. As yet untitled, book two will follow in early 2023.
The Puffin Book of Big Dreams
I was commissioned by Puffin to write a story for their 80th birthday anthology. It is a beautiful book full of incredible stories, some newly commissioned especially for this anthology, some from Puffins’ esteemed authors through its history, and some dreams from young people too. My story, THE GANG, is beautifully illustrated by Elisa Paganelli.
Published 3rd September 2020, you can order the book and find out more about the project HERE.
A FREE whole school assembly pack resource was created by Puffin to accompany my story and you can access it HERE.
Ink Flows is the poetry collection I wrote when I was Poet-in-Residence for Crossing the Tees Book Festival, illustrated by the incredible Illustrator-in-Residence Sara Gibbeson. It is available now from Teesside libraries, Book Corner in Saltburn and 6e Publishing.
This publication to which I contribute came into being as a result of a residency held in July 2020.
I won a Creative Future Literary Award 2018 for my poem entitled And I Know, which is published in the anthology Chemistry, which is available to buy here.
Poems for a Pound
I make books, from recycled paper, leaflets, old cards & books, and photocopied found objects, and then turn them into instant books containing my poetry. I colour photocopy them and sell them at gigs as Poems for a Pound.
