Tilly Tucker and the Timekeepers (YA fantasy)
When fourteen-year-old Tilly Tucker discovers she has the ability to travel through time, she is recruited by a secret order of time travellers, Timekeepers, whose role it is to thwart the misdeeds of rogue time travellers who wish to manipulate the timeline and change history for their own personal gain.
Tilly is then told about an ancient timekeeper prophecy ("Why does there always have to be a prophecy?" groans Tilly) which tells of the impending dawn of an altered timeline marred by disorder and oppression, born of the greed of time travellers turned bad. And yet, amid all this chaos, a girl will rise to do battle; the key to humanity's future. And that girl will be Tilly Tucker. #nightmare. As if the teenager didn't have enough problems!

Celeburbia (Romantic comedy / satire)
A deliciously satirical romantic comedy, shamelessly sending up England's ditzy, glitzy reality TV celebrity culture where a total nobody can become a massive somebody and talent is soooo overrated.
Sheldon Trent leaps back into the life of Daisy Thorne. But then Daisy loses him to TV reality star Melody Diamond, the most famous nobody in the world. However, Daisy soon begins to realise that the "Shelody" relationship is a sham; a pairing of convenience for the cameras, so she sets about winning back the man of her dreams. Ah, but the course of true love is never that simple.
