Mo hovers tantalisingly between fantasy and reality, between horror and wonder. It describes how a young boy tries to find his way as family, friends, and strangers tug at his conscience with their conflicting demands. All the while a mysterious voice attempts to guide him.
This enigmatic tale skilfully examines notions of identity in an unsettled world. Delving at times into the supernatural and at others into violent extremism, this intriguing and intelligent story can be seen as a modern day morality tale which will keep readers guessing throughout.
I was born in the south of England and spent most of my formative years growing up on the Isle of Wight. I then went on to read English and German at the University of Wales, Swansea, and then wrote my Ph.D. in German history and literature at the University of Nottingham. Finally, I completed a PGCE and spent many years living in Chesterfield, working at schools in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire. I now live near Berlin with my family.
