Francis Plug is a key figure in the British Literary scene, regularly found in the company of today's highest profile authors. Based in Tufnell Park, London, he also works as a residential gardener (with very competitive rates). How To Be A Public Author, his first book, was written with the assistance of amanuensis Paul Ewen, a New Zealand writer based in South London. His stories have appeared in the British Council's New Writing anthology, and also in the TES, Tank, and Five Dials. His first book, London Pub Reviews, was called "a cross between Blade Runner and Coronation Street'"(Waterstones) and "a work of comic genius" (Dan Rhodes).
