Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood has given me some of my happiest memories touring in this play with Richard Davies, Peter Childs, Peter Cleall, Malcolm McFee, Brian Hall, Christopher Timothy, David Lloyd Meredith, Ian Talbot, Meredith Edwards, and many other lovely actors.

In the tour I did with Meredith Edwards, he told me a tale about Dylan Thomas, and I wrote a short story based on it called The Poet in Soho which is published in my book Tales from Soho (Andrews UK). And now it has become one of the winning entries in the Audiojam Short Story competition and

This is one of the many stories in TALES from SOHO, available on order from most bookshops or from Amazon.
