My novel, The Second Cure, is being published by Penguin Random House in August 2018.

Watch this space for launch and other event details!

Literary fiction with speculative and thriller elements, the novel is set in current day and near-future Australia, and explores themes of the neuroscience of religious belief and politics, free will and creativity, with a generous dose of parasitism. 

A common parasite mutates and brings

cats, domestic and wild, to the edge of 

extinction. It infects humans, changing their

 neurology, perceptions and behaviour, and
ultimately altering society itself. 

Leading parasitologist Charlie Zinn

works on a cure, but evolution 

doesn't stand still
