Story
Introduction
I am a writer of books for children and young adults, an editor at Working Partners Ltd and a nerdy ex-Londoner now skulking mostly in the fens. 

My new book Demon Hunters: Trinity is out in September under the name Olivia Chase! It's a YA urban fantasy collaboration between me and the brilliant editors at Little Brown Young Readers. 

I'm one of seven (!) writers who write under the pen name Erin Hunter. My first Erin book, Survivors: Dead Of Night, is out now!

My first novel Skulk, a YA urban fantasy, won a place in Undiscovered Voices 2012 and came out in October 2013 from Strange Chemistry. 

I've also written packaged books for Usborne (Secret Ninja Spies), Hot Key Books (The Last Apprentice) and HarperCollins.
