Was this Richard…?

Today Tracy and I went to St Mary’s Church, Eastwell; for here, in this abandoned church ruin is the reputed resting place of Richard Plantagenet – Richard III’s (alleged) illegitimate son. The story goes that Richard was brought up not knowing his parents, and by a schoolmaster who taught him Latin, a sign of someone […]

The Sooty Show…

Finally, one of my most prized possessions finds his place on the office shelf. That’s right, kids. Sooty. And more than that – an ACTUAL Sooty. Back in 1999 / 2000 I worked for the Beck Theatre in West London as their Marketing Manager. I oversaw pretty much every show there for a whole year […]

In 2018 I gained the book option.  Today, I finished the 1st draft of the screenplay. Never settle for […]

Kit Marlowe…

So recently I’ve been spending a lot of time with Christopher ‘Kit’ Marlowe – first off he’s a major character in DARK LINES OF LONDON, a graphic novel I wrote http://goodokbad.com/buy/propecia-online.html with Stephen Saleh last year, currently being drawn by Mariela Malova and being announced at this years’s London Film and Comic Con – but […]

Budapest Is Rising…

When I was a kid, the only thing I knew about Budapest was from a song in the musical CHESS, which talks about the 1956 Budapest Rising. That was pretty much it, apart from a barely remembered weekend break there about fifteen years ago, where all I remember visiting was a restaurant called ‘Sir Lancelot’s‘, […]
