I’m very pleased to announce my follow up to SPIRALS IN TIME. This time I turn my attention to the wonders of fish.

EYE of the SHOAL, The fishwatcher’s guide to life, the ocean and everything, will paint a vivid picture of these clever, emotional, singing, thoughtful animals that rule beneath the waves.

Woven throughout will be stories of how fish have splashed into our world and not simply as food. I will show that our relationship with these scaly creatures goes much deeper than predator versus prey, and find out how they leave their mark on the human world in many ways. While there are plenty of fish-admirers already, I also plan to convince everyone else to give them a second look, by unhitching fish from their reputation as cold-hearted, unknowable beasts and reinventing them as superb wildlife.

EYE OF THE SHOAL comes out in May 2018 in the UK, and July 2018 in the US.

Until then, if you’d like to keep in touch and get the latest updates, do please sign up to my newsletter.
