I am a novelist. I have also done an assortment of creative things. Here are some quite interesting projects that I have worked on:
A cosy crime novel, the first in a trilogy titled "The Theatreland Mysteries", published by Bedford Square. I've been working on the first book since 2021, and if you've ever met me then I'm afraid I will pressure you to buy it once it's released in May.5 9781835010037 Patrick Gleeson
A webcomic I wrote, for and about software developers. I managed 42 episodes before my brain dissolved.
A business book I wrote, based on my experience as a coder and a manager of coders, aimed at the poor sods who have to deal with them. Published by Apress.5 9781484227008 Patrick Gleeson
A pilot for a comic sci-fi radio musical series. I wrote the script and the music, then to be honest I lost my nerve and abandoned it before I'd really given it a proper go.
A pilot for Jason Weight's TV grown-up comedy sci-fi animation. I wrote some music for it and voiced one of the characters.
A pilot for an animatronic live show set in a dystopian future. I built the animatronics, wrote the music/scripts/etc for a series of promotional short films that I sent to every producer under the sun. Sadly, although perhaps not surprisingly, I couldn't find funding to take it further.
A musical I created with Alexandra Spencer-Jones. I wrote the music and some of the lyrics. We put it on in Edinburgh, a few different London venues and the Latitude festival, and it's since been performed in the US a few times as well.
A steampunk cabaret. We got mentions in the Guardian and NME and a full photo feature in Bizarre magazine, and a small but devoted online following. I wrote the bulk of the music and lyrics.
