Bill Harding once wrote send ups of TV shows for school friends to read. He sent one to a TV comedy show. Bits got used. He was is 15, didn’t have a phone and the cheque genuinely was in the mail. He found out he’d become a screenwriter when he was watching TV and saw his name in the credits. This triggered decades of writing, mostly for television and the stage. Fifty-two years later he is finishing his first novel.
