I started writing novels and sports books in 2003. I have now written or co-written 65 titles, including the non-fiction bestseller 'The Sledger’s Handbook: How to Deliver the Perfect Cricketing Insult' (2006). I've edited more than 40 books, including the 'Discarded Science' series for Hugo Award-winning author Paul Barnett. I also work as a freelance copywriter/sub-editor for The Daily Telegraph.
I've written six feature screenplays, four of which have been commissioned or optioned. I've edited another three scripts for Wind Waltz Pictures and Liana Hall. I'm now developing my children’s book, The Battle of Boxhill, into a feature-length animation. My script (for the Boxhill project) reached the quarter-final of the Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition.
