Alex Marsh

Fine writer; good speaker; nice turn of phrase; eager to please.

My debut was 'Sex and Bowls and Rock and Roll': a comic memoir published by HarperCollins featuring a cover quote by Al Murray. I followed it up with 'The Resurrection of Frederic Debreu', a novel set in the French countryside, which took inspiration from Georges Brassens and Jake Thackray. (Cover quotes here from HBO, BBC4 and Faber writers/authors).

Previously The Observer named me as one of the world's 50 most influential bloggers. ("A modern-day Mr. Pooter" - Independent on Sunday.)

With my other hat on, I'm a successful marketing and advertising professional; I'm lucky enough to do a bunch of fun jobs from helping small businesses to writing blurb for some of Britain's most popular board games. I've worked with all sorts of organisations from the Bank of England and MI5 (yes, really) down to little start-up firms with a story to tell.

I've also written for several publications, including The Guardian.

I'm thoughtful and personable; an experienced public speaker; not set in my ways - do get in touch if you'd like to chat.
