"...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'm currently working on my second book, a book of essays about women, 'bad behaviour' and pain.
