Dan Anthony

Dan Anthony, the author of the popular Rugby Zombies trilogy, by Pont Books, gave an entertaining talk this evening at the Swansea & District Writer’s Circle. He gave us ten minutes to write a short script with the most hilarious results!

     Dan has worked as a scriptwriter on CBBC’s Story of Tracy Beaker and S4C’s The Baaas, but he has also written and directed endless radio programmes for BBC Radio Wales. His books for children have proved extremely popular, with Steve’s Dreams being my favourite and published by Firefly Press.

     Having arrived home after meeting Dan Anthony, I think tomorrow will see the start of my first script for children. But before that, I shall take his advice and watch the dark comedy ‘A Serious Man’ written by the Coen brothers. Nothing ventured, nothing gained! Thank you Dan Anthony for a brilliant talk!
