The Apartment Store is the story of Lydia, a little girl who lives in a ramshackle attic apartment, in a ramshackle apartment building, down the ramshackle end of town. All Lydia wants is a proper Christmas, but it doesn't seem likely until a new tenant arrives in their building and changes Christmas for everyone in it.
A Christmas podcast in the form of an 'Advent-ure Calendar', one chapter for every day of advent, this tells the story of Timothy Hope who stows away on an expedition to the North Pole, and finds himself caught up in an adventure of high seas, deep crevasses, slavering wolves, reindeer sleigh rides and much, much more. The splendid John Millington read it for me and made it much better than it could ever have been without him.
Submit is a data visualisation novella. Sort of. It's a thriller about a young man who can see data, all the data that surrounds, identifies us, defines us. It came from an original idea by Mike Dicks that evolved into a screenplay by me & James Erskine, but the novella is more or less entirely a new variation on the theme.
Oscar & the Magi is a book I wrote for my godson, who is called Oscar, so I made him the hero of the book. It seemed only fair. It's not very good though - although I still rather like the bit where it's revealed that Centrepoint on Tottenham Court Road is a magical prison and then all the street furniture comes to life. We've all had nights like that.
