Black Sheep – The Authorised biography of Nicol Williamson to be published by The History Press in February 2018


My biography of the great, sorely underrated and much missed British star Nicol Williamson was published on 16 February 2018.
And I’m pleased to announce that it’s already receiving excellent reviews, both from individual users on Amazon and from the media.

Ian Payn, a prolific reviewer of film and theatrical biographies on Amazon, wrote that:

‘You don’t even have to be particularly interested in Williamson per se to enjoy this book: it’s a valuable record of how, in show business, there’s a very thin line between success and failure, and how talent isn’t always enough.’
Chris Williams wrote that ‘the book builds, chapter by chapter, to a finish full of pathos. I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it without hesitation’.
 Moving on to British media – Paul T Davies of britishtheatre.com wrote that ‘it’s a fascinating portrait not just of the actor, but of theatre and film at a time of great social change, and an immensely informative and enjoyable read’.
