About meMy name's Rob - and I'm a writer living in London. I'm best known, I expect, for my work on Doctor Who - I brought the Daleks back to the screen to menace Christopher Eccleston a few years back! But I dabble in *everything* - I do radio, theatre, you name it. And I'm proudest of my fiction. My first book, Tiny Deaths, a collection of rather quirky short stories, won the World Fantasy Award in 2008. And my second collection, Love Songs for the Shy and Cynical, which is slightly quirkier, has just won the Edge Hill Reader's Prize and the Shirley Jackson Award. Do consider giving them a read, if the very word 'quirky' doesn't make you feel sick to the stomach!
About my libraryI'm very lucky - I've a house just about big enough to cope with the demands of my enormous (and ever growing!) book collection. I still have to smuggle them in when my wife isn't there to notice, however; both she and the cat are being edged out of the place! I love books - the smell of a new one, and the touch of an old one that has been loved already. Oh - and they're good for reading, too.
