His debut, best-selling YA novel HOLLOW PIKE was nominated for the prestigious Queen of Teen prize and was followed with the publication of YA thriller CRUEL SUMMER. James's first non-fiction title BEING A BOY, the ultimate guide to puberty, sex and relationships for young men, was published in Autumn 2013.
