I am an author and journalist living in Frome in Somerset.
My debut novel, A Boy Made of Blocks, was a Richard and Judy Book club pick and a bestseller, inspired by my autistic son, Zac, and how we connected through the computer game, Minecraft. My second novel, Days of Wonder, is a story about family, love and finding magic in everyday life. As a journalist, I have written for publications including Empire, Red and Esquire magazine and was the Guardian’s games editor for ten years. I’m currently writing my third novel, due out in 2020, and I’m still writing about video games for the Guardian.
