The new scifi novel, When the Children Come is finally available for pre-order on Amazon. Release date is 8th January. Here's the blurb:

Nathan, emotionally scarred after three tours in Afghanistan, lives alone in Manhattan until New Year’s Eve, when he meets Lara. The next morning, he notices something strange is going on – a terrified kid is being pursued by his father, and a girl, Sally, pleads with Nathan to hide her from her parents. There is no internet, no television, no phone coverage. 


Nathan, Lara and Sally flee along the East Coast, encountering madmen, terrorists, the armed forces, and other children frightened for their lives. The only thing Nathan knows for sure is that he must not fall asleep...


A fantastic and original premise…flashes of Stephen King and MR Carey.” Tom Witcomb


A nicely taut thriller, with a Lee Child feel to its staccato writing and strong action sequences, and a high concept stretching the novel into true science fiction territory.” Amanda Rutter 


Not just a page-turner – all in all a fabulous novel, which I was sad to finish.” Loulou Brown


There will also be a blog tour timed with the release, so I'm hoping for some good reviews. Now, I just need to start writing the sequel...
