My audio drama ‘One Single Ticket’ was launched at the Clifton Suspension Bridge visitor centre and opened by the Lord Mayor of Bristol.

The project was realised by former BBC producer and internationally respected BAFTA and EMMY winner  Martyn Harries. The play was engineered by the department of Computer Science and Creative Technologies, where Martyn is the Senior Lecturer Audio and Music Technology.

The play had a cast of eighteen, plus sound crew. The recording took place at various theatres and much of it was captured on film by my son, Nick, a professional photographer. Again, the launch was very well-attended and sales were high. The book of the play has sold thousands and has 80 five-star reviews so far.

 

[TRIVIA: Martyn played Brunel in the spoof promo video set at the Avon Valley Heritage Railway based at Bitton station, North Bristol.]

This is the new novel I am promoting; here is the background. I watched an interview with Robert Harris talking about his inspiration for ‘The Ghost’. He was intrigued by the idea of a person having status, power and influence. And then losing it. His subject was a former UK Prime Minister.

I thought: what if the person falling from grace was a famous TV celebrity? Maybe nothing new. But what if that person was innocent of any wrongdoing? What if his downfall is a carefully orchestrated set-up? This idea formed the background for the story: but 'Who Killed Nina Rossi' is the heartbeat of the story.
