All about author/playwright Sam Gayton in his own words….

“When I was born, Dad wanted to name me after an imaginary white rabbit called Harvey. Luckily, Mum is the boss of the house. I’ve lived in lots of towns and places. Above a Joke Shop, in a basement with big and hungry spiders, in a house with a ghost (we called him Kevin). Right now, I lived by the sea in the town of Margate.

I often get asked how old I am. Maybe I should start using Oil of Olay. Let’s just say I’m 97 years younger than the Eiffel Tower. I really like reading books about tiny people (like the Minpins, the Borrowers, the Lilliputians and the Oompah-Loompahs). I like tiny people so much, I’ve written a book about one. Sometimes I write true-life stories for magazines. The best story I’ve ever written had the headline: ‘MY DOG WAS KIDNAPPED BY THE TALIBAN!'”
