Representation

2013 so far has seen a happy collaboration with a literary agent about one of my books. This has been extremely hard work but very rewarding, and I’m now allowed to say that Artellus Ltd enjoy my writing and are working with me to hopefully further it.

There’s nothing more concrete than that to say at the moment. It’s a collaboration in progress. I have not give up the day job yet (I’m still gainfully employed three days a week as Roger Moore’s stunt double: though these days this rarely involves anything much more dangerous than poaching eggs, stepping into baths and running upstairs. Our days dangling off the Golden Gate Bridge are, alas, behind us.).

Gay Times

I am delighted and very proud to have an article published in the October 2013 edition of Gay Times magazine. It’s called “The New Breed of Out-At-School Teenager”.

It’s on a subject close to my heart, about conditions in UK schools for LGBT teens. It’s generally quite an upbeat article, as acceptance of gay students is undoubtedly greater now than in previous decades. However, since writing the article the ghost of Section 28 has reared its ugly head yet again!

Will that beast forever need slaying? Perhaps an updated version of the article will soon be due.
