Never Ever book cover

What's it all about?

Erin can't believe how bad her life is. Not only have her parents messed up and been forced to move from a comfortable home near the park to a lousy council estate, they only had to get a house opposite Liam 'I-think-I'm-it' Droy, didn't they? Could things be any worse?
Liam can't believe how great his life is. He's good-looking, loaded and has girls drooling over him. Then bingo! Erin arrives and it looks as if yet again God, a Manchester United supporter, has given him all he wants.

But life's not that straightforward for either of them.

'This is the best book I have ever read. I hope it wins lots of prizes.'

'My favourite of your books so far has been Never Ever because Erin's life is just like mine. I can really relate to the book. It's like a best friend that I can talk to at any time.'
Liz of Edwinstowe, Nottinghamshire

Where did the idea come from?

I once tried my hand at writing a stage play. It was called 'The Table' and centred around a huge pine kitchen table that wouldn't fit in to Erin's new family home. In the play, Erin's father had a nervous breakdown. I never finished the play but thought the ideas in it too good to waste so I made The Table into a story. As Jade's Story already had a theme of mental illness I changed that aspect but the rest is fairly true to the original idea.
