2001 Diary - If you want to start at the beginning ...

After writing books about computers and running a successful dotcom, Bob has embarked on his third career as a creative writer. 

Four short stories in high street magazines, articles in The Guardian and The Writer’s Handbook, and one shortlisted sitcom in the BBC Talent competition have whetted his appetite for success.

From fellow EastEnders script-writer Pippa McCarthy:

  'Just discovered your web page... I've just spent the last hour crying with laughter with periodic yelps of 'been there!'...  I'm going to make my entire family read your diary. Then perhaps they will understand my own bizarre behaviour every time I start a script...

Anyway, will shut up now but just wanted to say you have cheered me up no end. It's brilliant.'
