I write fiction, poetry, music and sketches as Alex Annesty and non-fiction under my real ‘day job’ name, Phil Chapman. In October 2017 I had my first full-length book, The Dead Straight Guide To Queen, published by Red Planet Publishing; more information on this is available at Phil Chapman online.
I was once a beaten quarter finalist in a seaside cheese measuring competition. I used to live in London, but decided to move after an army of vigilante squirrels invaded it, just as I was singing it to sleep.
I console myself in my arboreal rodent-enforced exile by writing long stories, short stories, poetry, sketches, a bit of music and occasionally, this blog. I’m also writing a novel, which has its own website at Zobeland.com. Although I seem no closer to completing it than I was when I started it back in 2003, I hold out hope that one day it will be finished, published and on the best sellers list; at that point I’ll refocus my energies on driving the squirrels back from whence they came.
