The Otherlife

I’ve written a book. It’s a book about Norse myths, and heavy metal, and school. It’s a book about the growing friendship between two boys: one charming, self-centred and ruthless, who has everything he’s ever wanted; the other is silent and secretive and wrapped in visions of a mysterious alternate realm he calls ‘The Otherlife’.

This YA novel has been my main project since Autumn 2012, when I first had a little spark of an idea; since then it’s gone on a long and twisty journey, changing and growing and benefitting from the input of many wise folk along the way, but I’m thrilled to announce that it will be published by the brilliant Andersen Press in July 2016. More news to follow soon, but in the meantime, here’s the announcement in the Bookseller.
