After leaving Worthing Art College, Robin, with friends, formed a touring theatre company in the early 70s named ‘Cliffhanger’. The shows were always comedies and contrived through improvisation. After writing for several TV comedies, he became a contributor to Alas Smith and Jones and later, the main writer for Mr. Bean, the series, movies and animations.
He’s recently put scriptwriting aside to write mystery thrillers, which might surprise some, but rather than write comedies, he’s chosen to write what he likes to read. But, as with old dogs and new tricks, he can’t help including a certain amount of comedy in his work. He lives near the South Downs behind Brighton.
