The Blackbird Singularity (Legend Press, 2016) was nominated for an Amazon Rising Star Award, longlisted for the Guardian’s Not the Booker Prize and featured on W H Smith’s 2017 Fresh Talent campaign.

Vince stops taking his lithium when he finds out about his partner's pregnancy. As withdrawal kicks in, he can barely hold his life together. Somewhere between making friends with a blackbird in the back garden and hearing his dead son's footsteps in the attic, he finds himself lost and alone, journeying through a world of chaos and darkness, completely unaware of the miracle that lies ahead.

“Masterful… intense and satisfyingly offbeat.” Melissa De Carlo (author of The Art of Crash Landing)
