Tomorrow, Tomorrow!

It’s only a day away…(Get the reference?)

Anyway, Yes! Tomorrow is the world release date for my debut novel and I am more than excited. Once I reach Shakespeare status I’ll be making up a new word fro how I feel right now.

My whole life so far has led up to this week. It’s seeing one of my biggest dreams being realised and I am proud to say that I have stuck to my motto in life- To make my biggest dreams look small…

I can’t wait to see what the next few years hold and I can’t even think about the years after that because that feeling will need a new word too. Thank you all for the support!

Tomorrow you’ll know where to get To the Stars. In the meantime, go check out my GoodReads page.1409683124753

Keep watching this space.

As always,



Finally! It’s the day! Here it is, ladies and gentlemen of the world. The cover of To the Stars



One boy. One girl. One world about to end.

When  the world finds out its inevitable end will come in sixty years, it seems like all hope is lost. Until a man steps from the darkness. He offers salvation, but demands total control. The world accepts.

Sixty years later, the old saviour’s son is leader and watches over the last proceedings of his father’s plans – Seven Ark ships called the Astrum Portas.

Noah is the next leader. He doesn’t want to be.

Zara is the girl he’s in love with. She doesn’t know it.

Three lives become complicatedly intertwined when a bomb on the Astrum Porta unexpectedly throws them into a whirlwind of secrets, forbidden love and violent clashes all while the looming apocalypse approaches rapidly.

The final adventure awaits…

So tell us what you think! Comment, Share with your friends…

And remember, one of you can win tickets to the book launch or a signed copy of To the Stars!

Take it away…
