The Spectacular Vision of Oskar Dunkelblick

OSKAR COver revised 1st May.jpg

My second novel, this time for Young Adults, is being released on 27th September 2018 (by RedDoor). It's the tale  of Oskar, the ultimate teenage loner, who hates being touched and whose eyes are always itchy from acute conjunctivitis. He perks himself up by painting other people's misery. But one day, during a not-so-routine eye test, his bleak perspective is blown apart when he tries on a pair of very unusual lenses. The world he suddenly glimpses is filled with beauty, love and wonder - and Oskar is furious!

But those lenses have opened his inner eye. Slowly, much against his darker nature, Oskar's behaviour starts to change, in ways that his worst nightmares could never have predicted...

A Novel Way to Travel

Cinema Lumière has been hitching a ride on the London tube as part of the brilliant Books on the Underground scheme. The idea is simple - and delightful. 20 books are cunningly placed on assorted tube trains, and if you spot one which takes your fancy, you can pick it up, read it, Tweet about it, then pop it back on whichever tube you happen to be when you're done. Genius.
