His books have been published in twelve countries and translated into nine languages. His first novel, What We Did On Our Holiday, was shortlisted for the W H Smith First Novel Award and was a huge critical and commercial success. It was filmed in 2006 by Granada for ITV. It was followed by the much acclaimed While The Sun Shines, and One Big Damn Puzzler. His recent novel, Florence and Giles, an international bestseller, has sold more than 250,000 copies and has been optioned for a major film which is in development at the moment. His latest novel, The Girl Who Couldn’t Read, is the long-awaited sequel to Florence and Giles, although it can be read as a standalone novel by those who haven’t read the earlier book.
