David Solomons: Shedworker

Dorset-based writer David Solomons (screenplay for Five Children and It, and more recently My Brother is a Superhero, My Gym Teacher is an Alien Overlord, and My Evil Twin is a Supervillain) is also a shedworker, as is his novelist wife Natasha Solomons. Here he is talking about his splending writing shed, pictured above, to the equally splendid Book Trust:
'Some writers will tell you that working in a room with a view is a very bad idea. How can you possibly concentrate with herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically outside your window? While I am sympathetic, I confess that I've always craved a glassy, airy, minimalist space with the kind of view to get an estate agent thumbing frantically through his thesaurus. Since our children came along, the minimalist bit has taken a battering, but I'm not complaining. In My Brother is a Superhero, the narrator, Luke, regards his tree house as his sanctuary. This is mine.'
