I've been a copy, speech and scriptwriter for a long time!
Before that, I wrote songs and stories for the BBC, then became a stand-up comedian for eight years, writing my own stories (no jokes!). I also wrote and sang all the songs for my rock band - the Stan Arnold Combo.
I now live in and work from Lanzarote, with my wife Dee and cats, Bonzo and Jingle.
In my four years on the island, I have written four funny novels - The Implosion Trilogy, no less!
The stories are about two incompetent Soho-based video producers who drink too much, don't earn enough and get too many death threats.
I suppose the next thing to do is promote these little offerings so I can archive my life's ambition - to own a garden shed on Mustique.
(All very well, I hear you say, but have you seen the price of creosote on the island?)
