Vintage is out now, published by Five Leaves. Ask for it in good bookshops. On sale in The Bookshop, Kibworth Beauchamp, and Waterstones, Leicester, and at Shakespeare and Co in Paris! But that's a long trip.

Here's the latest interview, in Carousel:

A body swap tale with a twist. Two likeable sixteen-year-old girls are facing the challenges of adolescence. You might think they have a lot in common, but they don't. That's because Holly is living today and Marilyn is in 1962. Each girl finds herself inhabiting the other's identity and year. As the girls face up to mad families, disgusting mealtimes and hideous fashions they learn as much about their radically different timeslots as they do about themselves. It's black and white television versus DVD digital. It's clunky phones againts mobiles. It's tyrannical parents or bewildering freedom. And as for boys, well, the more things change the more they stay the same. The outsider's viewpoint on both worlds affords plenty of laughs laced with satire, reminding us how much teenage life has changed. This is an engaging, well-written book that will stay with you long after you've finished the last page.
