"A brilliant, bonkers, brain-burstingly funny book" Lou Kuenzler, Shrinking Violet
Many children think their step-parents are super-villains . . . but what if they really were?
10-year-old Billy's mum has just re-married, and his new step-dad Phil is smarmy and try-hard . . . Even if he is super rich. On top of that, Billy – and his best-friend Viv – are so unpopular at school, only the IT Club rank below them in the school food-chain. And, the school bully keeps throwing bins at Billy's head.
So, when Billy discovers his step-dad is a super-villain with an evil plan to destroy the entire world, it is the perfect excuse to break Phil and his mum up. But gathering evidence about a super-villain is harder than it looks, and when Billy accidentally becomes 'Bin Boy' – a superhero sensation – things become a whole lot more complicated.
Suddenly the fate of the global population is on Bin Boy’s shoulders. Can he save his family and the entire world?!
A story of friendship, pizza, fizzy drinks, a super-hacker, a volcano secret-lair, excellent technological wonderment, a platinum-toothed crocodile . . . And a superhero sensation!

A GANGSTER STOLE MY TRUNKS
My second book, A GANGSTER STOLE MY TRUNKS, is out in July 2022, published by Scholastic and illustrated by the amazing Nathan Reed
One boy's mission to take down a team of super-villains ... with the help of his boring, dishcloth-selling grandad?
When Jesse's grandad wins tickets to a retirement cruise and offers to bring Jesse along, Jesse is not exactly thrilled. A boat load of old age pensioners?! No thanks. Not to mention that he's pretty sure his parents are going to be talking about a D.I.V.O.R.C.E. while he's safely out of the way.
But from the moment the pair arrive on the cruise ship, it's a different story. Mysterious cat burglars, crime lords and smugglers all seem to be on board ... and odder than that, Gramps knows them all! When an attempted murder occurs, Jesse decides it's time to find out what they're hiding, and catch the villain responsible.
But Gramps might be hiding the biggest secret of all ... can Jesse unravel the mystery, before time runs out?
A hilarious adventure with heart for fans of THE WORST HOLIDAY EVER and GANGSTA GRANNY. Featuring a gorgeous intergenerational relationship between a boy and his grandad, who is determined to reconnect with his family before illness intervenes.
