Story

Hello and thank you for visiting this page.

I am using the occasion of the launch of my first novel 'Gods Behaving Badly' to raise money and awareness of the charity Chance UK. Chance UK provides mentoring for primary school children with behavioural difficulties in my home borough of Islington, as well as Hackney and across the country. Mentoring from Chance UK has been proven to improve children's behaviour and well-being, helping kids from the most deprived and difficult backgrounds have the opportunities to succeed which I have taken for granted throughout my life.

I will be donating all the royalties from copies of my book sold at my launch, and I hope that you will consider making a donation too. Many thanks for your generosity.
