Nick Rowe, a British over-40-something bloke. Always had a creative side which, in the last couple of decades, has been joined by an analytical side which is far more useful for paying bills. The creative side went into a sulk but has been coaxed out of its shell and given some crayons and a typewriter.
You may have noticed that this blog is called ‘babbitman’ and thought “Huh?”…
Well. Yes. Not initially my first choice. It was late at night, I was tired. I needed a blog name but everything I wanted to use was taken.
So I turned to one of the main characters in my first story – Babbit. He’s a rabbit based on a cuddly toy belonging to my eldest daughter; in fact all of the characters in the story are based on the soft toys of tiny childhood. And Babbit seemed to suit me better than the other option, a bear called ‘Pinky’. And I thought I probably wouldn’t be using the blog much anyway.
