Why subscribe?

Once a week, you’ll receive a selection of words from my keyboard. It could be a story about refugees in Chios, a behind-the-scenes look at writing a BBC sitcom, or a deep dive into the science of psychedelics.

Whatever it is, it’s always fresh, never spammy and every edition goes straight into your inbox.

I love hearing what you think of my stories and sharing your wisdom only deepens the connection we make through these weird words. As well as replying to emails, you can like, share and comment on my posts.

If that sounds tasty, fill in your email and feel welcome.

Much love,
