Books, podcasts, radio, performing and music are my work and passions. I've made programmes for BBC Radio 3 and 4 and – together with producer Sara-Jane Hall – won a Sony Award for BBC Radio 3's The Haunted Moustache. I give talks and perform one-man shows on subjects from the trickster to ghost villages. I make podcasts for The Canal and River Trust and The Odditorium; have written a number of books – including The No. 9 Bus to Utopia and The Haunted Moustache – and released six albums with the band Oddfellow's Casino.  A friend once described me as 'a one-man cottage industry'. I kind of like that.

The Haunted Moustache is a genuinely marvellous demonstration of how beautifully the mechanism of reality functions, if you're paying sufficient attention. Neurologically, this will light you up like a Christmas tree.”
