The Background

You have to blog to be seen, and you have to be seen to blog, so I was told. Believing what I'm told, I joined the blogging revolution.

The blog has reviews of things I've seen, read or listened to, and comments on anything else that winds me up enough to make me feel like venting my spleen to a world that may or may not be listening, but in all likelihood probably isn't.

If you want to know more about me or get in touch, go to or if that's too much like hard work, just read my biog below; 

Andy is a graduate of University of East Anglia's Creative Writing MA. He has written several plays and one non-fiction book. Andy runs a Creative Writing course for beginners at The Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington, and also offers advice to scriptwriters working towards a first draft and beyond. 

His latest play Casual Encounters premiered at Underground Venues, Buxton and went on to enjoy a sell-out run at Etcetera Theatre, Camden in August 2013. A short version of the play was described as ‘terrific, very funny with lots of good gags. More than that, it made brilliant use of the gags to achieve and support the three act structure' by Richard Bean, writer of One Man, Two Guvnors.

Andy won the Roy Purdue New Writing Trophy, held at the Orange Tree Theatre, 2011 with his play A Bridge Game Too Far.  His other plays include Are You Lonesome Tonight?, Heart Shaped Box, Mistaken for Strangers (co-written with Howie Ripley), Going for Gold, and Summer's Gone a collaboration with eight other writers (KDC Theatre 2011). 

His book Around the States in 90 Days tells the story of his attempt to see as much of America as he could in the three months he was allowed to spend there. Published in paperback in 2009 and on Kindle in 2011, the book has been continuously in the top 10% best sellers on AmazonUK Kindle charts since August 2012. 

Andy reviews theatre and film for Remote Goat and The Public Reviews, and also writes football and sports articles that have been published by Late Tackle and various non-league football clubs.
