Nigel Parry-Williams

Nigel Parry-Williams failed to get into Oxford.There followed a career as an advertising copywriter with over two hundred commercials aired, a half-finished novel in a drawer and a screenplay still being passed from desk to desk in LA.He time is split between the Welsh Valleys during the rugby season, and a ranch in Texas where he pretends to be a cowboy, even though I’ve given up riding through a combination of old age and cowardice. And I write from 04:00 every morning for three hours, wherever I am. (Dr Johnson said ‘None but a blockhead ever wrote, if not for money.’ He was usually right.)
