200th Anniversary of Frankenstein; Or, The Modern Prometheus (1818)

“Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I
should first break through, and pour a torrent of light
into our dark world.”
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley: Frankenstein; Or, The Modern Prometheus (1818)

The inspiration behind my third novel BONE SURFERS! 

My third YA novel BONE SURFERS is almost ready for launch!

‘That first, impossible leap with me clinging to Remy’s shoulders takes my breath away. He has a short run up and I am convinced that we are going to die but he lands running on the parapet opposite…’

Well, like Remy, my third novel, BONE SURFERS, is finally ready to launch! After winning Lancashire Book of the Year 2013 with my debut YA novel TORN and Dudley Teen Book Awards 2015 with TAKEN I have had a short hiatus whilst taking on the role of Senior TV Film and Radio Engineer at Birmingham City University.

But thanks to everyone who has continued to encourage me along the way. Your messages really mean a lot and it has been great to meet so many of you on our travels around the country.

I won't have to travel too far though for the launch of BONE SURFERS as Pedmore Technology College, Stourbridge, have asked me to visit on 27th, 28th February and 1st and 2nd March 2018.

The novel itself is set several hundred miles away and twenty metres below the heart of Paris in a chilling labyrinth of catacombs lined with the bones of six million dead people...

...It isn’t what 16-year old Fellin Hunter signed up for on a school trip to France – and she didn’t think she would be bleaching her hair blonde, sneaking into underground cosplay parties or discovering traces of a lost community. But that was before she met the super cool Blaise Duval - and Remy Magritte, a parkour runner who flies across Parisian buildings like he’s from another world.

When Fellin is wrongfully arrested for a string of murders the punishment is unthinkable. There is only one person who can save her - but what if he is the killer?
