"...a funny, brutal, kind, sobering, remarkably brave and clear-eyed book. Compelling and necessary." - Warren Ellis, author of Normal, Gun Machine and Transmetropolitan
My first book, A Beginner’s Guide to Losing Your Mind, was published by Hodder & Stoughton in the UK and Sourcebooks in the US. The book is also forthcoming in China and Taiwan. The book is a practical guide to mental health for young people, and you can order it here in the UK and here in the US. My agent is Zoe Ross at United Agents.
I am currently working on my second book.
