Elvis Costello & The Attractions, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Simon, Deee Lite and The Buggles.
This week, I’ll be welcoming the brilliant Simon Michael to the virtual studio.
Simon has been a published author since the late 1980s. Simon is today probably most recognisable as the author of the best-selling Charles Holborne thriller series published by Sapere Books. The series features his antihero barrister, an East End villain made good, battling the prejudices of the 1960s and the corrupt Metropolitan Police.
He has also written romantic fiction, including the Cosmopolitan Short Story Prize shortlisted ‘Split’, and speculative fiction. He performs his one-man show, My Life in Crime, at literary festivals, libraries and to Women’s Institutes, Probus, U3A and Rotary groups.
I’ll be talking to Simon about the Charles Holborne series, and about his writing, inspirations and influences. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
