‘Utterly life-affirming…a hymn to the strength of the human spirit and the healing beauty of nature.’
Fiona Noble, The Guardian
‘Loaded with mountain climbing, wild animals, survival skills and bags of hope. Do read it…’

‘Look no further if you want a book with real heart this Christmas.‘
‘Anyone ever told you that you’re too clever for your own good, Laura Marlin?’
With her arch-nemesis, Mr A, safely behind bars, Laura Marlin can’t wait to relax on a school trip to Australia. But hours after arriving, a seemingly threatening supernatural message makes her fear for her own safety. As the group tours the Northern wilderness, mysteries and near-disasters haunt them, but only Laura believes they’re connected. Can she figure out what’s real and what’s an illusion … before it’s too late?
One of the most special moments of my life was writing Last Place You Look with my beautiful friend, Australian singer-songwriter Jane Kitto Andersson. The song was partly inspired by friendship between Martine and Jemmy in The White Giraffe, but it’s also about the connections between us all.
Jane did me the huge honour of asking Australian horse whisperer Janettle Wilson, and her incredible horses and dogs to star in the video. Last year, when I was researching The Secret of Supernatural Creek in Australia’s Northern Territory, I spent time with them. It was unforgettable.
