Write & Draw

Marjane Satrapi, graphic novelist, illustrator and film director has said that: “ Images are a way of writing. When you have the talent to be able to write and draw, it seems a shame to choose one. I think it's better to do both.” I agree and that is why Left Field will include photos. It is also why I am delighted that Russell Mills will be designing the book's cover. His images are his way of writing and what a great writer he is. I am proud to join him as co-author. Well known for his record / CD / album covers, he is also a major book cover designer. You can see his work here. His authors include Ian McEwan & Milan Kundera, Don Delillo & Jayne Anne Phillips. Thank you, Russell. And for these words about 'Left Field'. You’ve done so much, achieved so much, that is for the good, the right, the just, that to be asked to undertake the cover design for you, which may be considered a minor thing in the great scheme of things, is for me a bloody major thing”. 

'Left Field', to be published by Unbound, is now fully funded, so be sure to order your copy and have your name printed in the book.
