The Holy Ghost Fathers were grim, but girls from the Jacobs biscuit factory were great. I wrote short stories at Trinity College Dublin before moving to the Athens Daily Post. Here, in the port of Pireaus, worldly dark-haired women asked if one would like to have a good time, while in Syntagma Square tourists talked admiringly about the Acropolis and the Parthenon.
Back in London on my first booze-fuelled tabloid it was 'deliver, or you're out!' As an assistant leader-writer I duly attacked the Germans in sixty words and praised the virtues of British farmers in one hundred and twenty. It was much the same on tabloids two and three where I frequently had to invent disgracefully scandalous stories about celebs, politicians and others who just happened to be in the news - see blog posts 46 & 40-31 on my website ... but then I started writing fiction ... and now I'm in heaven!!
