"Topical and thought-provoking, this mad, 'bad' book is also tremendous fun."
From the acclaimed author of THE SAVAGES comes a riotous black comedy and brand new breed of outcast.
Uptight schoolboy, Maurice, struggles in a world that’s taken a feral turn. Ever since a human subclass crept out of the sinkholes and hid among us, just one thing gives them away. Their offspring hit adolescence and boom! They transform into seriously anti-social monsters.
The trolls, as they're less-than-affectionately known, are everywhere: in the streets, our classrooms and all over the internet. The solution? To contain these incurable troublemakers in vast, secure settlements.
A school bus tour through one such sprawling urban zone is intended to be educational for Maurice and his classmates, but an unexpected event unwittingly turns the schoolboy into a wanted troll freedom fighter. Together with Wretch, a habitual fire starter with a heart of gold, and with reluctant support from social worker Candy Lau, Maurice is forced to go on the run and even shake up the system while he’s at it.

I was in a band as a teenager. The most notable thing about us was the fact that we blagged our lighting rig from Bauhaus. All I remember about those gigs is being so blinded by strobes that we just turned up the volume and hoped for the best. I turned to writing once we went our separate ways, but never lost interest in making music.
So, in between books over the last few years, I've returned to my first love. Wreckages is an instrumental project available for free streaming and download.
All tracks on this first release, Come to Rest are composed, performed and produced by me, on and off from 2013 - 2015. The last two tracks contain samples from street recordings, and come to you with a parental advisory label. Rock and roll.
And now back to the day job...
