I’m a writer.
I mainly work for BBC Radio 4’s drama serial The Archers. I used to be the show’s senior producer and since 2003 I’ve been a scriptwriter.
Until 2015, I ran the official website for the show. In the past, I hosted its message board and I wrote ten editions of an annual pocket guide: Who’s Who in The Archers.
In 2019, I wrote a proper book with hard covers and everything: The Archers Year of Food and Farming.
Away from writing, it’s mainly music. I sing, and play drums and percussion, and dabble with keyboards and harmonica. I used to work professionally as a DJ, but now it’s just the occasional friend’s party.
I love dancing. All sorts.
The best way to keep up to date with me
It’s got to be Twitter
I’m Welsh, but grew up in Wiltshire and have been a happy resident of the fine city of Birmingham, UK since 1991.
I have three sons:
- The eldest works in higher education administration. He graduated in Japanese from Leeds University in 2012. His blog tells about his experiences in Japan.
- The middle one is a keen member of the Festival Arts drama group.
- The youngest used to play Daniel Hebden Lloyd in The Archers. He went on to an MA in Acting at Mountview drama school and is pursuing an acting career.
