I began writing monologues in Lancashire dialect in 1990 whilst
working for British Aerospace
at Warton Aerodrome Nr Blackpool
in Lancashire, England.
I was fascinated by a book that I had found, written by
Stanley Holloway in the 1950's,
in which there were several 'monologues' written by him and others,
but mostly written by the
master of the humorous monologue
- I never have discovered whether Marriott was his first or
last name -
I was hooked and I was sure that I could
humorous story in that style.....and so
I wrote my first one
More were to follow in 1991 to keep me and my friends amused,
and one or two were published in magazines
and a couple have also been performed on the radio.
When I bought my first computer in 1998 I decided that I
would post them 'on the net'
to reach a wider audience
and so here they are !
This newly constructed Website allows the visitor, not only
to read the monologues,
but also to hear them read by the author by clicking-on the Audio link
which will open-up a new window
and, lastly, please please please
don't forget to sign my guestbook......thanks !
