Deep Water 

Jon should never have skipped school with his friend Ryan – never have taken that boat. Now Ryan is in danger – and only Jon can save him. But Jon is scared. The police are knocking on his door. They know he’s lying. Is it too late to tell the truth?

"This story kept me on the edge of my seat."
Books for Keeps.

"A compelling and realistic moral tangle...Fast and easy, slim but not slight, you couldn’t go wrong with this."
The Irish Times

“Intricately plotted but written with a stylish economy, this gripping novel is perfect for even the most easily distracted reader.”
The Guardian


“It is no mean feat to have created the tension of a thriller out of a moral dilemma.”


“Short and tightly-written, this story prods deep into human weakness and the child’s mind.  It’s discomforting, nerve wracking and very thought-provoking.”
The Northern Echo


“A riveting short novel.”
