I write books, stories for Radio 4 and poems. In 2015 After Hours, a sitcom I wrote with Molly Naylor will be on Sky 1. It’s being filmed now; we’ve got the loveliest most talented cast and crew including Ardal O’Hanlon, Jaime Winstone, Georgina Campbell, Susan Cookson and John Thompson.
My new Radio 4 story The New Blur Album will be broadcast later this year.
Don’t Need The Sunshine, my book about seasides is still available to buy in shops and online.
‘Gentle without being dull, sharp but never sneering, witty but without a hint of the show-off, John Osborne is a lovely, engaging writer finding the joyous in the everyday and as charming and unpredictable as the British seaside itself.’ - STUART MACONIE on Don’t Need The Sunshine (The AA, 2013).
