Tony switched careers in 2008 – from pensions and investment – to focus on writing. Several of his plays have been produced in London, Edinburgh and various fringes and other venues around the UK, as well as a run at off-Broadway 59E59 Theaters in New York. His first novel, Blessed Assurance, was published in 2019 and has been adapted for the stage by Damn Cheek.
Tony has written 2 poetry collections, a book for children, a millennium review and (as co-writer) a libretto for the choral pageant George and The Dragon.
He also finds time for running writers’ groups, choral singing and playing saxophone with the Greensand Trio.
