Soon, London gives a name to its terror:VAMPIRES Jake Lawton, bitter and betrayed after the Iraq War, find himself fighting another battle - against the growing army of immortal hunters and their human cohorts. Lawton joins forces with the journalist who brought about his downfall and the dealer tricked into distributing the drug.

His first novel, a Welsh-language vampire story, was published in 1996. He's had three novels, two collections of stories, and two non-fiction books published in Welsh. He is also an award-winning playwright. On April 1, 2008, Snowbooks published his first English-language novel, Maneater. Skarlet, the first book in The Vampire Trinity, followed in 2009.
