When Jane Fonda asked Dolly Parton to appear in the movie ‘9 To 5’, she would only agree with the condition she could write the theme song. From that conversation, one of Parton’s greatest hits was born.

Jaws

The filming was besieged by one problem after another. Friction between the actors, a shark that didn’t work, and running over schedule and budget making the entire film look like a flop. By the end of filming, the movie blockbuster was born, and Hollywood would never be the same again.

Many critics dismissed David Bowie’s debut single, Space Oddity, just a novelty record cashing in on the imminent lunar landings in 1969. The inspiration for this seminal work is actually a different tale altogether.

Travel Writing

Having lived in Thailand for a number of years now I am in a unique position to able to write a blog about many of the places I go and the things I see. Below are a selection of posts, so if travel writing is your thing, let me know.

Interview Articles

I also have experice in writing interview articles like this one for The Wee Short Magazine in 2019. For the article I had to interview several comedians about their upcoming shows. Click on the image and make your way to page 26 of the magazine to see the article.

My Comedy Writing

A collection of people all reading books by Henri H Henry

The Henri H Henry ‘Brief Collection’

For many years I wrote and performed stand up comedy, travelling the country with my solo show as a comedy character called Henry von Stifle.

I later adapted some of the material written during this time into a series of comedy books. You can click on the image to see more.

If you’re looking for any writing of a comedic nature I’d love to talk to you. All of the books in this collection are fake historical lectures. Some of the subjects I cover are;

  • Police Academy Movies
  • Furniture
  • Walls
  • Pandemics
