About me

Occupation Writer
Location Manchester, England UK
Introduction I am a writer of novels, plays and film scripts. I live in Manchester England with my partner Andy and our teenage son Jack. Andy and I started my Newsletter Raw Meat and began publishing with Rawprintz in 1999 to showcase my work. Some of you may be confused by my continual references to Ziggy, that’s my wheelchair! Both Andy and I are writers. I’ve recently lost my sight – hence the continual reference to my being confused! Thanks for visiting.
Interests Oscar Wilde (his fiction isn't as good as his philosophical stuff or as interesting as his life), Reading (Philip Pullman's Dark Materials Trillogy at the moment), Angela Carter, Cheese (I'm a particular fan of blue stilton), Art (I'm a great lover of the preraphelites and though I've now lost my sight I can still remember several pictures in great detail), Colour, Anarchy, Slow lorises, Black forrest gatteaux, Speed (going really fast: not the drug)
Favorite Movies Bladerunner, Siesta, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Saint Oscar (actually a play), Star Wars (the origional films obviously), Titanic
Favorite Music Elvis Costello, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, 80s music, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel
Favorite Books His Dark Materials, The Bloody Chamber, The Cement Garden, Hawksmoor
