I believe that the best thing in the world that you can do for and to any reader is to entertain and if you can't make someone laugh then a smile will do.
I've been writing for around 30 years a combination of animated scripts and before that copy for all sorts of print media but now I am in the middle of - one could say surrounded by - my biggest challenge - The Cat and his books, be warned there will be a lot of them.
As well as writing comedy I am working on a thriller at the moment but if I told you any more than that when it is published it wouldn't be any thrilling.
So that is the bit about what I write, here is the up close and personal stuff - well the bits that I think I can share. I'm married to the incredibly talented lady who took the amazing and much admired photograph on the cover of "Getting Out - Excerpts from a Cat's Diary," and for the very inquisitive she's called Lena. I'm English, though I live in Prague in the Czech Republic.
Is that personal enough? No? Ok, well what can I say my inside leg measurement once won a prize for being a perfect number and I like to walk in the relatively pollution free hills around Prague, I don't walk to get inspiration, just a better figure.
