The Echo Chamber

My 13th adult novel, THE ECHO CHAMBER, will be published in the UK & Ireland by Doubleday on 5th August 2021. Here’s the back jacket copy: What a thing of wonder a mobile phone is. Six ounces of metal, glass


There’ll be more festival events and readings when the pandemic is over!
