Personal Quote:

[on writing five novels in the space of a year after he was told he had an inoperable brain tumor] It can be done. If you write 2000 words before breakfast, you have the rest of the day to yourself. See more »

Trivia:

Fired from his job at the Yorkshire Post after reviewing one of his own books (published under the name Joseph Kell). His review was negative but emphasized the book's sexual content: "This is in many ways a dirty book, and those of my readers with tender stomachs are advised to let it alone". See more »
