My debut middle-grade novel ALEX NEPTUNE, DRAGON THIEF will be published by Usborne in August 2022! Here's a story summary:
"For as long as Alex Neptune can remember, the ocean has been trying to kill him. So he's not too happy when a bunch of sea creatures drag him to the abandoned aquarium on the hill, where an imprisoned water dragon needs his help. But how can he say no to a magical creature?
"Recruiting his tech-genius best friend Zoe, legend-lover Anil, a sharp-shooting octopus, three acrobatic otters and a thieving seagull, Alex plots a heist to break the dragon out. And suddenly discovers the power of the ocean at his fingertips..."
It's the first in a series, with two more Alex Neptune books following in 2023.
I'm so excited to finally make my middle-grade debut. It's an age group I've always wanted to write for, with many failed attempts before this point, so striking a deal with Usborne really is a dream come true.
ALEX NEPTUNE, DRAGON THIEF is available to pre-order now.
