I’m delighted to be back at The Bookseller’s annual Children’s Conference for a day of talks, panels, and collaboration. This year, I’ll be hosting a panel at the intersection of book & screen! If you’re going, please do say hello!
I was fortunate to return to the annual London Screenwriters’ Festival to host a panel on one of my favourite topics, science fiction. It was an esteemed panel of Ed Neumeier (ROBOCOP, STARSHIP TROOPERS), Debbie Moon (WOLFBLOOD), and Dr. Una McCormack (professor at Anglia Ruskin University and author of DOCTOR WHO and Star Trek novels). If you’re a writer, the […]

As you know, I’m a big comic book fan. But not being an illustrator, I’ve never had the courage to mount a graphic novel…until now. I’ve teamed up with Dynamo on something super cool, a new graphic novel called CORTEX. Think: CSI meets INCEPTION. “We have a warrant to search your mind.” What do you think?
This week saw the release of the first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One and next week sees the fifth anniversary of the publication of MetaWars. Full disclosure, I’ve not read RPO as I didn’t want to be unduly influenced by Cline’s work as I was still writing books 3 […]
Today is World Book Day, a day to celebrate books, reading, and our favourite characters. It’s a chance for children to relish in the imagination that reading emboldens.
