Welcome to Rhyl. Even the demons think it’s Hell.


Ben Robson can’t remember a time before he had the Box, with its three mischief-making demon occupants: smelly, cantankerous Orff, manically destructive Kartofel, and fat, slobbering greedy-guts Djinn. When Ben was a kid it was fun, and he enjoyed their company. But now he’s fourteen they’re nothing but trouble.


Then one day Ben has an angelic visitor who tells him that he can be rid of the Box forever if he sends it back to Hell. There’s only one catch – the Box has other plans…


The Box of Demons was the winner of the 2013 Write Now! Prize. First released as a limited edition hardback to coincide with Independent Booksellers Week 2015, it is now available in paperback for the first time, from all good bookshops.
