Johnny and George are two fresh-faced eighteen-year-olds, determined to make the most of their last summer of freedom before heading out into the big, bad world. The boys leave their hometown of Nottingham to search for excitement among the bright lights of London, having booked tickets to see one of their favourite bands in a concert.
These best-laid schemes are soon derailed, however, when party-mad Johnny meets Lara, a beautiful stranger on her way to Spain for a relaxing holiday alone. Not one to pass up an opportunity to chase a pretty girl, Johnny tries to convince his reserved best friend that a holiday in Spain is just what they need. Disappointed George was hoping for some quality time with his buddy, but nevertheless agrees, unable to resist Johnny’s powers of persuasion. What neither boy knows, however, is that Lara is trying to escape some demons of her own, and what initially seems like a relaxing week in the sun, turns out to be the ultimate test of Johnny and George’s friendship.
One Week Of Summer is a fast-paced ride through seven tumultuous days for three confused, lonely and horny young adults. Narrated through the eyes of a multitude of characters, the novel offers a glimpse into the exciting, but often heart-breaking, lives of the youth of the twenty-first century, desperate for happiness, love and just one more unforgettable night…

About the Author:
I am a writer from England, currently living in Cambridge, working hard to finish my university degree in Spanish and Russian.
My passion for writing stretches longer than my memory does. I vaguely recall sitting in my living room as a child of around four years old, writing a story about a petulant kid who would answer all of his parents’ demands with “if I have to.” It has yet to win the Pulitzer prize, but at least it amused my family.
As I grew older, my subject matter ranged from talking bears with a thirst for adventure to ghost stories, fueled by my childhood love of ‘Goosebumps’ books and my own overactive imagination. I have always been an avid reader, and my own stories have been inspired by everything from the classics to contemporary cult fiction.
In 2010 I was lucky enough to be granted a place to study at Cambridge University, a place steeped in history and expectation. It was after my second year here that I began work on my debut novel, Angel, loosely based on some of my own experiences in Cambridge along with my constant urge to wonder ‘what if…’ Angel was released in 2013 and is currently available in both eBook and paperback formats.
As I grow older and leave university, it is my hope that I will be lucky enough to continue writing, as there are so many more themes I want to explore. My stories are driven by real life problems, youth culture and sexuality.
I am a keen follower of pop culture and this also plays a big part in my writing. Ever since I was a teenager, I found pop music was able to express my own feelings in much more clarity than I could ever hope for. Music and literature are my two biggest passions, and I believe they are intrinsically linked. Aside from this, I am deeply passionate about worldwide LGBT rights and the protection of animals – both big and small.
