Martin Knight was brought up on a London council estate, left school at 15 and became a writer when he met a former football hooligan, Martin King, and wrote a book ('Hoolifan') with him. He has written many books since including 'Battersea Girl', 'Grass' and most recently, 'Justice for Joan - The Arundel Murder', a true story of an unsolved murder in Sussex. He co-owns www.London-Books.co.uk, who 'Fly the Flag for Free Thinking Literature'
He recommends 'A Man Of His Time' by Alan Sillitoe and credits Alan with these wise words, "Ignore what anyone else thinks...writing isn't about earning a living, it's something you have to do if you're that way inclined"
"To be honest, I don't have a structure, I write as and when it grabs me..."
