The Playlist

With two failed groups behind him and struggling to get a decent note out of a guitar, pop stardom seemed a long way off for Jimmy Wenn. But with a dead popstar cousin giving advice; a vamp girlfriend who’s really a faerie princess; and all that business with the tennis racket, it seemed Jimmy had imagined life so differently.

Playlist, a life to the tune of 45rpm 7″ vinyl singles.

Coming soon

Mind Clearance

Very funny and original short fiction.

“From tweet-length wordplay to email-length flash fiction, this collection is a mind map of an original and very funny creative talent.”


Only the Brits can be as funny as this.

“This book is hilarious, extremely well done. Every short piece is a gem.”
