(1967- ) UK author whose Young Adult sf novel Six Days (2011) is set in a Ruined-Earth London a century after the devastating Invasion of the Vlads (ie Russians), who are in search of the same mysterious "artefact" (see McGuffin) that the young protagonists' mysterious friends also need. These friends turn out to be Aliens, and the tale segues, perhaps rather rollickingly, into Space Opera. Where the Rock Splits the Sky (2014), something of a remix of the previous tale, also features a devastated planet, a plucky girl with unusual skills, aliens; but is most set, this time around, in the American West, as an sf Western.
