Simon and Fionn met in 2012 when Simon operated on Fionn and saved her life. Since then they have become good friends and began writing together, largely by email as they are rarely in the same place at the same time. They write in close collaboration; everything is planned, discussed and reviewed meticulously by both them and their partners. To date they have written two complete novels, one as yet unpublished, as well as a number of radio plays. There are plans for at least two further novels as well as other literary projects.
