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 the annual pocket guide Who’s Who in The Archers.
I also do a bit of performance poetry.
Away from writing, it’s mainly music. I sing, and play drums, percussion and harmonica. I used to work professionally as a DJ, but now it’s just the occasional friend’s party.
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 Birmingam, UK since 1991.
I have three sons:
- The eldest 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.
- And the youngest one used to play Daniel Hebden Lloyd in The Archers.
