About meI am a writer as well as a reader. Scarily it is getting on for forty years since BBC Schools Radio gave me my first commission, and I have been writing as a part-time freelance ever since, mainly plays for the Beeb, and for education publishers. I got involved also with writing questions and formats for various TV and radio quiz shows. It's only in the last five years that I have been able to write full time, and in that time have produced: a collection of short stories 'We Never Had It So Good'; a thriller novel '11:59', which reached the semi-final of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2010 and was subsequently published by Wild Wolf; and an historical novel 'Mr Stephenson's Regret', an Amazon semi-finalist in 2011, also published by Wild Wolf. Recently I have gone back to writing for BBC radio, including contributing to a comedy team for 'Jesting About' starring Mark Benton and Charlie Hardwick. I also do readings and workshops.
About my libraryI love the classics, especially British and Russian novelists of the nineteenth century, but I try to give as much time as possible to contemporary work too. Two of my favourite short story writers are Alice Munro and William Trevor. Among novelists I would recommend especially Ian McEwan, William Boyd and Hilary Mantel. Alan Bennett is a great favourite and so is.... oh, so many.
