Pop!

A bottle washes up at Queenie's feet. Inside it, she finds the secret recipe to the world's favourite fizzy drink.

It's priceless, and the people who lost it will stop at nothing to get it back.

Run, Queenie, run!

 

Joyride to Armageddon...

Pop! is a story that I wanted to write for a long time before I finally got the chance. The idea was to take a normal person, Queenie, an all-too-common object, a plastic bottle, and create an extraordinary adventure...

 

When the secret recipe to the world's favourite fizzy drink, Mac-Tonic, washes up in a bottle at Queenie's feet, her life changes instantly. With a ruthless corporation on her heels and a $10 million bounty on her head, Queenie has no choice but to run. She forms an unlikely friendship along the way, but who else can she trust? Is The Mac-Tonic Corporation really as wicked as it seems? And can she evade capture long enough to make a difference?

Inspired by urban myths, pop culture, and conspiracy theories, Pop! features a man-eating alligator, a trip to Area 51, and a whole host of oddballs and eccentrics. The book is a white-knuckle ride across America, through deserts and swamps and cities: a joyride to Armageddon. It is also a challenge to corporate greed and plastic pollution - a story that shows what can be achieved when individuals take a stand.

Pop! is wild, zany, and (hopefully) very funny. It was certainly a lot of fun to write, and I really hope it's just as much fun to read.
