His first published novel was Midget (1994), a psychological thriller set in Leigh-on-Sea. This has been followed by several other novels:Dragon's Rock (1995), a thriller set in Devon; River Boy (1997), a story about love and bereavement and winner of the Carnegie Medal; Shadows(1999), a gritty love story; Storm Catchers (2001), a kidnap thriller; Starseeker (2002), a mystical exploration of love, loss and music, also made into a play; Apocalypse (2004), an allegory about the future of mankind, and Frozen Fire (2006), a philosophical thriller about the nature of reality.

His most recent works are Books 1 and 2 of his urban thriller series Blade (published in March 08), and his new novel Bloodchild, a story about memory, secrets and betrayal (published September 2008).
