Here's me talking a little blurb thing about it whilst standing in my kitchen. It's available in the shops and online.
My second book IT'S ABOUT LOVE came out June 2015 and was written for myself aged 16. It's a story all about where I'm from. My Mum, sister and cousin Janet loved it. I'm chuffed with it. It's available in most bookshops on the Young Adult shelf and libraries soon I guess. Or you can buy it online HERE
I did a spoken introduction to the story

My first book TAPE came out in January 2013 and was written for myself aged 13. Some people loved it. Others thought is was two slow. It is exactly the book 13 year old me wanted. You can get it from most bookshops and libraries on the Young Adult shelf or buy it online HERE
I wrote a spoken introduction to the story below.
