I made the final shortlist in the Page Turner Awards 2023 with my bonkers novel Disordinary.


Disordinary (Literary fiction)
Nineteen-year-old Dandelion Price identifies as a disordinary. That is, eccentric, peculiar, not of the norm. Abandoned by her mother as a newborn baby, she has spent years struggling with her mental health. Her pain is as real and as deep as her self-harm scars.
But Dandelion Price is special. Extraordinary beyond belief. This is a girl whose consciousness randomly projects itself through time, occupying the mind and body of her past or future self. And as she tumbles back and forth through key moments in her lifetime, she soon discovers that the very essence of existence, although at times curious and eye-opening can be so cruel, so unforgiving, so unexpected.
Witty and hilarious, yet tragic and disturbing, prepare yourself for the trip of her lifetime.

Trinity Truelove and theTimekeepers (Children's 10+ fantasy adventure)
When thirteen-year-old Trinity Truelove 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 for their own personal gain. From finding herself trapped in a runaway horse-drawn carriage in the eighteenth century to a collapsing cliff-edge house during the height of the Great Storm of 1987, then over to an eleventh century castle under attack, Trinity's time travel training is anything but boring.
Trinity is then let in on the full story. An ancient Timekeeper prophecy ("Why does there always have to be a prophecy?" groans Trinity) tells of the impending dawn of a broken, unrecognisable world, an altered timeline marred by misery and oppression, born of the greed of time travellers turned bad. And yet, amid all this chaos, a special girl will rise to do battle; the key to humanity's future. And that girl will be Trinity Truelove.
#nightmare. As if the teenager didn't have enough problems!

However, Daisy soon discovers that the "Shelody" relationship is merely a pairing of convenience for the cameras, so she sets about winning back the man of her dreams. Ah, but it won't be easy. Melody has already turned Sheldon into a lucrative brand. Is he really prepared to ditch his newfound fame and fortune and return to his ordinary life?
