A collection of some of my earlier works.

 
Year Title

1983 Trig Trog
He tells such marvolose storys. My seven-year-old account of this classic Yuletide fable, included in "My Christmas Book" along with Mary and the Angle and My Christmas Stocking ("iff you got suffercated, you wolld die").

1985

Aladoushus and the Gorges

1985

Damacus and Thisian
Twin tales of sibling strife - I was almost into double figures when I wrote these (and finally allowed a pen...)

1986

Living at the Confluence
A tale of life in deadly Tewkesbury...

1986-87

River Poetry
Assorted verse with a watery theme from my 3rd year at junior school. I dont think I've written a poem since.

1988


Lost
How different that TV show might have been if Robin had written it... aren't you glad you're not marooned here? A co-authored assignment from my last year at junior school.


1988

Future Life
Another place you wouldn't want to be... Robin's vision of life in 2020, from the same school project.

1989

Untitled
Written over the Easter Holiday, when I was twelve. Dedicated to "Randy [Jackson], my hero" - yes the guy from American Pop Idol (later to do jail time for assaulting his wife and young baby). Little did I know...

1989

Kerfunk's Good Day
Another Randy (and Michael) Jackson story, featuring what have to be the least convincing gang members in fictional history - Clive and Midge? (!) "Bossing around our gang as if y' own it. Well, I'm not 'avin' you in it any more, so you can jolly well get lost!" Quite.

1990

Demon Baby
A (very) short-lived comic strip, done in Graphic Art class.

1990

The Clubhouse

Also written over a holiday (probably Summer Break 1990), thus predating the King of Hollywood knife fight by about 13 years - note that Mike also has a blade scar on his cheek.

1990

Untitled
A bizarre short play, my (distinctly un-PC!) attempt to do "edgy" with a cast of hip young things. Remember when we still had "Our Price record stores"?

1990

DOA
A short whodunnit, written with my younger brother.


1991


The Scottish Adventure
My first (sadly unfinished!) attempt at writing a novel - I got up 92,000 words before GCSE revision took over.

1991

Baked Beans for Guy
Written with a friend (in about two hours!), this was the joint winner of the 1991 Watford Palace Theatre Young Playwright competition (Under 19 category). Were we the only ones to enter? Probably...

1991

A Thousand A Year
Another whodunnit, this one is in play form. Written with two schoolfriends and performed in front of our English class - I played Granny.

1991

Not 18: Essay on a Child's Viewpoint

1991

Aftereffect: An Essay Involving the Senses

Later submitted as part of my English GCSE coursework during Year 11. We didnt have "A stars" in those days.

1992

Such a Good Boy
Another spooky story, from about the same time.

1996

The Road to Hell
A ten-minute screenplay adaptation of "The Snow Child" by Angela Carter, part of the coursework for a Creative Writing module for my second-year Screen Studies course at Liverpool John Moores University.

1997

Nevermore
A thirty-minute screenplay, adapted from the classic 1845 poem "The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe, for the same module. Possibly my first gay-themed work (were Eddie and Jason lovers?).
