(1970-    ) UK author of Young Adult titles including the two Pelly D tales, The Diary of Pelly D (2005) and Cherry Heaven (2007). In the first volume, a young boy from City Five finds the buried diaries of Pelly D, which make up the body of the text, and explain how the sanitized Dystopian world of the novel's present has come into being through ethnic cleansing and other intolerable governmental initiatives; the second volume follows its cast into a Utopia also rooted in the distressing early-twenty-first-century circumstances that gave it birth. The Glittering Eye (2009), set in Egypt in various epochs, is a complex story involving Time Travel. [JC]
