About the Author


I had my first computer when I was 18. The one after that was connected to the internet, although I was the only one of my friends with a dial-up connection for at least a year. I remember my first multimedia PC, my first polyphonic ring tone, and wondering why anyone would want a camera on a telephone.

I’ve always been fascinated by technology and the impact it is having on our lives. It’s why I have worked as a technology journalist for the past 15 years, and it’s why I chose computer hacking as the subject of my first novel, Translucence. I am currently working on a follow-up.

A group of hackers get more than they bargained for when they try to take on the financial system.

Translucence is a story for a post-crisis world that has become disillusioned with the rules that govern us. It centres around Reuben Brunner, a city banker who has always felt there was more to life than champagne and designer clothes, and Theo, a brilliant but paranoid computer programmer searching for the perfect algorithm.
