Crusher began during National Novel Writing Month and is the first installment of a YA trilogy. According to The Bookseller, fiction editor Annie Eaton negotiated the deal with literary agent Valerie Hoskins of Valerie Hoskins Associates.

Here’s more from the article: “Crusher, a ‘gritty’ London-set thriller about a 17-year-old school dropout who finds his stepfather murdered and becomes prime suspect for the crime, will be published by the Doubleday young adult imprint in September.”

As a television writer, Leonard has worked on several UK series including Monarch of the Glen, Wire in the Blood and Wild at Heart. He is currently attached to a new series called Air Force One is Down. (Via Shelf Awareness)
