When I came to London from University I started writing and combined that with working for theatres and TV and film companies as a script reader. I worked at the Royal Court for a while, which taught me so much. And then I became a 'telly writer' and script editor.

Now I am writing novels that are big and epic and draw on all the parts of my life, and of me. HELL ON EARTH may be a surprise to readers who know my previous books - it's not SF, for starters. But there's still humou

The End of the Jesus Era by Danail Hristov
“Every being, created by God and unspoiled by man, is perfect, strictly defined and autonomous, entirely complete and at the same time with a built-in ability to grow and develop.
