Release Day!

Here we are. Book day at last! My first ever fiction book is out and available to buy!

I’m overwhelmed by the response it’s received so far. Although a lot of these stories have already been published, I hadn’t received much feedback so it’s been brilliant to see which tales people have connected with most. Without giving much away, a lot of readers have enjoyed The White of the Canvas, The Pigeon Catchers and The Monster of Grug in particular. I’d love to hear what your favourite one is too!



So how can you read Flying on the Ground? 

It’s available worldwide via Amazon in eBook, and in most countries in paperback. Links below! To celebrate release day I’ve reduced the prices of both versions so take advantage while you can!
