If I Never
Publisher : Legend Press
If I Never centres on the growing love between two "social misfits". Clearly "meant for each other" in a most unusual way, the world and those around them threaten to pull them apart... the two drawn into the complicated lives of friends, consumed by unfolding mysteries and dangers.

The Story Behind This Book
If I Never was written at a time in my life when I was very determined to write the novel that I wanted to write, rather than the novels I've been told I should be writing. I very consciously broke many so-called writing rules and, to a degree, stuck two fingers up at those who said I couldn't write this kind of novel and get it published. I wrote it and the first publisher I sent it to accepted it. A lesson there for all aspiring writers!

"If I Never is a novel as dark as the late British afternoon in winter. As rich as blood sausage, and as satisfying as a full English breakfast." -- Gregg Farley, innovation consultant and author of Jack's Notebook.
