My first four books (Antenatal & Postnatal Depression, Sweet FA, Frankie Says Relapse and The Scene Stealers) were for adults and published by Random House and Hodder & Stoughton between 2000 and 2005.

In 2010, I self-published my first novel for young adults, Dear Dylan. It went on to win a national book award and ended up going to auction. I still have to keep pinching myself that this actually happened, and it's proof that even your wildest dreams can sometimes come true! 

Dear Dylan was re-published by Egmont UK in April 2012. It has also been published in France and Germany. My next YA novel, Finding Cherokee Brown, is being published in April 2013.

Here’s what some of the reviewers have had to say about Dear Dylan:
