His books include the YA novels Envy and Betrayal of the Empty Coffin series.
For the Guardian, he named a top ten list of murderous teen reads, including:
Carrie by Stephen KingRead about another book on the list.
I realise the story of tortured wallflower Carrie White (the girl with something extra) isn't really a murder book. But, as many readers know, she does kill off most of the graduating class at the school prom. So I'll say it fits in nicely here. I loved this book when I was just out of high school and consider it YA even before any of us knew that particular letter pairing. And I'll leave you with this: Pig blood is good. Revenge is even better.
Carrie is on James Dawson's top ten list of books to get you through high school.
