It's beginning to look a lot like...

Hi All,

Apologies for the delay in updating, but I have been hideously busy with one thing or another.

Work has become a hellhole of Christmas panic. I'm sure it is the same for many of you. What is it about this one day a year that sends humankind into such a frenzy? We have books for sale all year and yet people only want them now? Most of them are books about Hitler and war and trains and ships. Where is the Christmas in that?

What the hell! It's all profit, plus I get a chance to get Buble's Christmas album out again - now that is Christmas!

I have finished my new book - Mayflies. If you want a look, the first couple of chapters will be on this site and it is available on Amazon. It contains both the book and the screenplay, simply because the book was adapted from the screenplay and I thought it might be interesting for people to see both. It was also interesting as an exercise in writing - it is very difficult to get across the same emotional requirements in the screenplay as there are in the book; they are both very different animals. Anyway, if you feel like feeding back, I always welcome some constructive criticism and if anybody wants to make a know ehere I am!

By the way, I saw Glenn Hughes at the Holmfirth Picturedrome last week, very ably supported by the Dead Sea Skulls. Storming! A superb drum solo is available on my Facebook page. Watch it. It is hypnotic.

If I don't update before Christmas, I wish all of you a great and peacful one. Be nice. Stay away from the road rage and the morons and put a little love out there.

All the best to you and yours.

Profile Information

Chris Bradbury was born in 1962. He attended schools in Bracknell, Windsor, Mauritius and Bloxham and, despite all these, failed to learn a thing. He spent his formative years in a cocoon and failed to see the time go by. When he woke up he realised that it was too late.

He has been a shop worker, a hospital porter, worked in medical records, in the CSSD department, as an estate agent, as a nurse, as a delivery driver and a bus driver and now works in a warehouse, ironically for a one of Brtitain's best publishers of military books. Do they publish fiction? Do they heck as like! Hey ho.

He is married to a lady and has some lady children.

He loves them.
