Meet Adrian Plass
As far as how he got started writing it came about almost by accident. “People come to writing for all sorts of different reasons,” he says. “But for me, oddly enough, it was really as a sort of therapy. I was ill—I had this stress illness. I had to do something…” 25 books later, Adrian is still writing; although he says, “Every time I finish a book I know I’ll never write another one. And [then] I sit at my computer…” Adrian’s myriad of books include Stress Family Robinson, Learning to Fly, The Heart of the Family, Words from the Cross, Colours of Survival (co-authored with his wife, Bridget), The Visit and Other Short Stories, Year at St. Yoricks, Smile on the Face of God, Cabbages for King, and perhaps his most famous, The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass.
His new release, Ghosts, is loosely based on three real life events. While he was on a trip to speak, he found that he was staying in the most haunted house in England, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. The second was a reunion with some childhood friends after 30 years. The third was the death of his mother. Adrian says, “Much of the content of Ghosts comes from that time.”
Upcoming projects are: Never Mind the Reversing Ducks, Family Life, as well as And Jesus Will Be Born. Adrian lives in England with his wife, Bridget, and their daughter, Kate.
