The last few months have been fun, as the media has got itself in a twist at the prospect of me writing an erotic novel. After the enormous success of Fifty Shades of Grey, there seemed to be an element of bandwagon jumping, but in truth, the idea had been in my head for a long time.

With retirement from television a reality and just 14 months to go before I call a halt on my radio career, like any sensible person, I was making plans for my retirement. Writing a book seemed as good an idea as any to fill the time.

In September 2016 I will have spent two decades working my butt off to make up for the previous 30 years of failure. Eighty-hour weeks were the norm as I reached the ultimate happiness of working at my hobby. I do not intend retiring to a life of bridge and golf.
