‘We had our first child so I quit job so I could be more flexible… that also gave the opportunity to write, it did mean that when I got the time to write I was ready to use it.’
Eddie Robson has written in all forms of media: from his successful BBC sitcom Welcome To Our Village, Please Invade Carefully to books about Film Noir and his Sci-Fi debut novel Tomorrow Never Knows. Doing a MA in Creative Writing made him take this path more seriously. Eddie finished his Sci-Fi novel while taking care of his children at home and is now working on a second one.
Eddie Robson is also a very, very friendly writer. When I bought his book at a Sci-Fi convention he gave me a biscuit – a super tasty one, and for those who know me, biscuits are my only true love. Please, go out and buy Eddie’s book – it’s as delightful as his home-made biscuits, I promise. Or you can also meet him in person this Friday 18th of March in Lancaster LitFest!
If you want to get into freelance writing or radio, or if you’re trying to publish your first novel you cannot miss Eddie‘s encouraging story!
