My postbag is currently swelling as seasonal stresses build up.

I always reply but prioritise families in East Anglia.

An actress playing Margery Kempe having one of her ecstasies

My publications range from the off-beat academic to the quirkily childlike. At the first extreme, I've translated the autobiographical Book which the saintly but hysterical Margery Kempe dictated in broad Norfolk six centuries ago.

 Above and below, actresses re-create Margery in agony and ecstasy, as featured in the film for which I've been honoured to write the script.

Performing a scene from Kempe's book translated by Tony Triggs

At the quirky, childlike extreme of my range are children's books like Fisherman Fred, with his ever-changing shop sign ...

and The Gibleteers - the story of a girl whose bedroom ceiling starts dripping blood in the dead of night and who probes the secrets of the cannibalistic goblins who inhabit her loft.
