Martin Henson has a rich and varied past to draw on for his passion for writing, beginning his nine-to-five life as Sir Laurence Olivier's window cleaner in West Sussex, and finishing thirty five years later in London as marketing director for an international marketing group.
His spare time is filled with another passion, music. Having played in successful bands in the past, nowadays, gigging has been replaced by playing the guitar and piano at home. Martin's stops along his career route have included co-writing the 1982 Glastonbury Festival single, playing live on Radio 1 alongside Johnny Rotten, being a voiceover artist for various radio stations including Capital and Kiss, writing advertising copy for brands including UniLever and Marks & Spencer and appearances on BBC Radio 5 as an independent marketing specialist.
Spaghetti Bolognaise is Martin's first novel with a second underway.
