Introducing Book Two …

Coming Soon Image

Alf and Wilf are back, and this time they’ve been tasked with investigating suspicious activity at Gribble school.

The trouble is, there isn’t any.

It looks like they’ve got no chance of catching whoever’s been spying for a magical corporation from another reality … until someone loses their head. Literally. All of a sudden there’s suspicious activity all over the place, from some surprising directions, and Alf and Wilf no longer know who to trust. It’s time for another trip over the Nameless Hills but will the witch with the castle in her cottage help or hinder them? With a pair of sarcastic horses, a magic carpet, and some cocktail umbrellas all getting in on the act, can Alf and Wilf work out who’s on their side to uncover the spy and save the school from poisoned magic before it’s too late?

Book Two is written and now going through the editing process and should be ready for release in the next few weeks! Woohoo. (About time too, I know.)

I can now reveal that the title of Book Two, the second book in the Gribble Adventures series, is (drumroll) …


Coming soon: a cover reveal and some snippets from the new book. Keep your eyes peeled! Hurrah.


Happy birthday to THE DRAGON IN THE DRAIN!


Amazingly, it’s a whole year today since THE DRAGON IN THE DRAIN was published. Before Brexit. Before Trump. Before Peter Capaldi told us he was leaving Doctor Who. What a difference a year makes. Unless you’re a rock or some other static geological feature. Then it hardly makes any difference at all.

Anyway. To celebrate THE DRAGON IN THE DRAIN’s first birthday, why not read it again? Grab your paperback or your Kindle, get yourself a nice cup of tea and a piece of cake, and enjoy the first Gribble adventure in preparation for …


Yes, this is an official announcement that BOOK TWO is officially on the way. Officially. It’s got a title (which I will be revealing soon) and most of a cover (which I will also be revealing soon. See a clever pattern emerging?) and it will be on sale later in the summer. STAY TUNED FOR MORE NEWS.

But in the meantime, this is THE DRAGON IN THE DRAIN’s day. Happy birthday to my firstborn publication. If you enjoyed it, why not write it a nice review as a jolly birthday gift?
