They operate on a freelance basis, and have produced work for several publishers including Scholastic (Outernet series)[4], and Collins (The Dark Forest Series)[5]. Their first published work was a book of three short plays, "Paper Tigers" (1991) in the Oxford Playscripts series[6], while their first novel was "I fell in Love with a Leather Jacket" (1993)[7]. They have also written a large body of work for educational publishers, and have been series editors for Impact[disambiguation needed] and High Impact[disambiguation needed] (materials for struggling readers) for Heinemann, as well as series editors for Heinemann Plays and Oxford Playscripts. They have also written parody books such as "Star Bores" (2000)[8], to coincide with the releases of popular and anticipated films. However, the bulk of their work still remains in the field of children's and teenage literature. A number of their books have been translated into other languages, and The Mad Myths, Vernon Bright, The Dark Forest and Erik Bloodaxe books have been released as spoken word tapes. They have recently made some of their older books available on the iPhone and iPod touch via Sleepydog[9][10][11]..
