Intentional Dissonance


Intentional Dissonance is my new novel.

It’s a love story that takes place in the last city on Earth, after (and before) the end of the world.

There’s a man called Jon Salt, a doctor who wants to kill him or at least abuse a gift he has, a tree called Edward, a girl called Michelle, another girl called Emily who sells a drug that makes you sad (called Sadness) which Jon Salt is addicted to and a mute assassin called One Eye.

It also involves ghosts, Sylvia Plath’s diary and Kurt Cobain’s guitar.

If I’m really honest, it’s a book about what it feels like to fall forever.

So it’s quite complicated. But I’m happy and I feel like I wrote the book I wanted to write.

It should be available early December. Between now and then, every now and again, I’ll be posting different snippets from the manuscript in different places.


On I Wrote This For You.



Thank you for your patience and support, I honestly can’t wait for you to read it.

Before even reading this post and seeing it said December, I was already trying to buy it on the Kindle store.

I'm looking forward to this, it sounds like just my kind of novel.

The link should be fixed and Silvia has been changed to Sylvia, well spotted.

I had stopped checking IWTFY because you said you were working on your book. I discovered a quote from you on www.holliesquotes.com and thought I'd come over and check out the page. I saw this snippet about the book .... it sounds amazing. And I love the word & meaning of saudade .... words that don't exist in the English language but should. Can't wait for the book to come out <3
