Radio Interview ‘Out in South London Extra’ Resonance FM on 1st March 2016

It was great to be on ‘Out in South London’ again – this time being interviewed by Matt Williams about Pharmakeia. I was joined by Tommy James, The Queer Historian, who discusses his one man show Homophobe. Last time I was on the show was back in 2010 when I was interviewed by Rosie Wilby about my debut novel, Homo Jihad.

In this interview with Matt Williams, I talk about the themes and storyline of Pharmakeia. I also talk about the writing process, conceptual art and magical realism.

Polari Literary Salon

On 29th January, a week after the book launch at Gay’s The Word, I was invited to read an excerpt from Pharmakeia at Polari, Paul Burston’s literary salon held at The Southbank Centre. It was the first Polari of 2016 and a great line-up, including esteemed authors Alex Marwood, Stevie Henden, Anya Nyx and Adam Mars-Jones. It was great to see Paul Burston, Alex Hopkins and Kath Gifford and to be accompanied by Nikki Kelly (better known as Yellowcoat Sylivia from Hi-di-Hi) Many thanks to Penelope Maynard for stepping in, yet again, as the indomitable Crystal.
