Steve McAuliffe is novelist, playwright and poet, as well as being a lyricist and vocalist for the Mighty Ur.
To date he has had 2 books published: 'The Letters of Harry Tartt', and the book that you are now holding in your hand.
Steve has had three plays performed; the latest was entitled 'Heaven and Hell', and concerned 3 angels forced to sit out the apocalypse in a South London pub.
His 2017 collection of poetry, 'Thamesmead' has been described as "thought-provoking, humorous and uplifting".
Steve also possesses a Master's Degree in Screenwriting and has recently set up a writing-workshop in South Somerset. He is currently working on a book entitled 'Blake's Wake', which he rather pretentiously describes as "not exactly a sequel to Farraway, but more accurately an equal to Farraway". In fairness to him though, he was very drunk when he said it.
