Down from Upland is a kitchen sink domestic novel set around the first batch of Millennials to find themselves raising a teenager. Jacqui and Scott strain to put their beliefs about non-monogamy, racial equality and the follies of binge drinking into practice by over-parenting their only son, Axle. The novel also features Wellington's best and brightest: the precocious youth of Wellington High, a young Brazilian man on the tail end of a working holiday, an earnest policy team from the Ministry of Health and the New Zealand Police Force's carbon neutral schemers.

The book follows his 2020 release Rat King Landlord and a handful of books writing as Richard Meros.
