PATRICK CHAPMAN INTERVIEW | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it

Today, to celebrate publication day, I'm delighted to welcome writer Patrick Chapman to my blog with his new and selected poetry collection A Promiscuity of Spines (Salmon). Patrick lives in Dublin and his poetry collections are Jazztown (Raven Arts, 1991), The New Pornography (Salmon, 1996), Breaking Hearts and Traffic Lights (Salmon, 2007), A Shopping Mall on Mars (BlazeVOX, 2008) and The Darwin Vampires (Salmon, 2010). His collection of short stories is The Wow Signal (Bluechrome, 2007). Also a scriptwriter, he adapted his own published story for Burning the Bed (2003). He has written episodes of the BBC/RTÉ children’s animated series Garth & Bev (Kavaleer, 2009); and a Doctor Who audio play, Fear of the Daleks (Big Finish, UK, 2007).
