Sample writing:


There is no ‘best way’ to achieve a convincing acting performance. The only reliable indicator is whether those watching it accept you as the character you are playing and believe what you’re saying. It is all about that willing suspension of disbelief.


It is inescapable to anyone capable of joined up thinking that nearly all religions have been hijacked by the power crazed and murderous to wreak havoc down the ages. Even religions widely considered more inherently peaceful have had their moments.


I hope that every one of every hue imaginable gives the club the very cold shoulder it deserves.


About Mary Tamm:

He said: "There was one day I was with a friend around at her flat. She asked us to leave as a couple of important people were coming around.

"As we left Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor came in."

(Hey kids - yeah I know. They want to make themselves a big baddie to be on a similar level).

It's all OK.

(I could turn out to be the baddie! There's a twist).

But I'll forever try not to be.

Is this just a reprint? His columns have been published before by Hirst Books. (Now out of print since the company closed)
