Entered the theatre world as marketing manager for Venue Cymru, Llandudno in 1994.

Promoted shows in London and Dublin - over 2500 in all: opera, ballet, musicals, gigs, drama, comedy, panto and corporate sector marketing.

In 2002 I gave up marketing to write my children's adventure, ‘Kamakan The Vampire Slug’ winning the Undiscovered Authors Competition and a book deal.

I have twice produced 'Kamakan' live; as a storyteller recital and a full family show.

More recently, I wrote and co-produced the one-man play "TALK!!" for Bruce Jones (Coronation Street's Les Battersby) and formed a production company to stage it.

Currently writing various pieces including a radio sitcom and screenplay,

New novel, "The Ballad of Gee de Bourke". I'm looking for an agent and publisher for this. Please email me at huwrob99[at]gmail[dot]com if you are interested in representing me or publishing my work.

Twitter Activity: I write parody writing tips poking fun at the writing industry. Keeps me entertained. You can follow them at @Huwmanchoo.

Working with / assisting magician and author Mark Elsdon to write new material for his magician clients' live shows.. It's an interesting and highly entertaining experience.

Below are links to 'Kamakan' and the website for TALK!! where you can watch rehearsal videos.

In my spare time, I am the world's most outrageous online agony aunt. I play bass guitar in the heavy metal band King Boss and I perform solo with my own material.
