The mad food crime opera ended up being rather good! Below is a link to some social media snippets from the rehearsals and the day. There will be a film, apparently. I shall post the link when it’s done.

Mad #foodcrime musical

Like the strange sea mist in The Incredible Shrinking Man the #stopfoodcrime project is nearly upon us. There will be singing and instruments and solo performers and something resembling a story that has pathos and redemption, and most importantly there will be fucking amazing songs (courtesy Sara Colman- music: yours truly-libretto).

Come and see the play – The Hand That Feeds – in central Birmingham. It will be something! Or else it will be me at the end with a darning needle fending off a marauding spider. Help me!


Thank you ACE

I am delighted to have been awarded an Arts Council Grant for 2014-2015 to support my current novel. I’m not sure what state the arts would be in without ACE – but there are plenty of relieved and grateful writers scribbling away thanks to this amazing support.

Novel on track. First draft due late October.
