“It's hard to remember hating anything as much as I hate Affinity; a bone deep loathing for the faceless unknown and the concrete walls of my own DNA.”

Book Two of the Spark Trilogy

Evie is a shield: designed to kill, and the Affinity Project have finally come for her. But Evie isn't ready for the sinister organisation to take control of her life, her body, her mind. She isn't ready to follow their rules about who can live and who must die - not when it condemns the innocent. She has one option: risk losing everything and everyone - including Jamie - and run.

“You think God has a loophole for people who don’t have a choice?”

Jamie shrugs.
“Hope so, otherwise we’re screwed.”

Evie doesn’t have a choice.

One day she’s an ordinary seventeen year old, grieving for her mother. The next, she’s a Shield, the result of a decades-old experiment gone wrong, bound by DNA to defend her best friend from an unknown killer.

The threat could come at home, at school, anywhere. All Evie knows is that it will be a fight to the death.

And then there’s Jamie. irresistible. off-limits.

Praise for Spark:

"Spark is perfect for 14-year olds who liked Scott Westerfeld's 'Uglies' series and Suzanne Collins' 'The Hunger Games' trilogy."
★★★★★ Books + Publishing

"With more twists than a bowl of spaghetti, I couldn't put Spark down. Now I'm chaffing at the bit for Book Two."
Magpies magazine

"The real world disappeared as I lost myself in Evie's high stakes dilemmas."

Spotify Playlists

Music is a massive part of my creative process, a way to soak up the mood and atmosphere of my imaginary world.

Some months, working on Spark, I went on a Muse bender, or The Killers, or The Black Keys. I couldn’t count the number of times I’ve thrashed Jack White’s solo album ‘Blunderbuss’. ‘Love Interruption’ is one of my favourite Evie & Jamie love songs. If I was working on something melancholic I might wallow in Coldplay, for Evie angst Muse, for ass-kicking fight scenes Foo Fighters, Green Day, The White Stripes... and many other bands.
