When you write for a living, you can make the underside of a shoe sound interesting, but when it comes to writing about yourself?
Hmm…not so easy.
So I bribed asked someone else to do it for me:
Guy, Interrupted is the alter-ego of Kristian Johns, a thirtysomething editor and writer from South London, who has been dubbed ‘the male Carrie Bradshaw’ — which he secretly rather enjoys, but will never admit.
Sometimes, funny, sometimes heartfelt, sometimes controversial, always entertaining, he chronicles his adventures ‘careening around London like a pinball in an arcade game’ in the award-winning blog, Sex, Drugs and Sausage Rolls: London life, love and other random stuff.
His first short story, Dying and Other Superpowers, from the anthology Boys and Girls (edited by Paul Burston) received favourable reviews. He is currently working on his first full-length novel, which expands on the Dying and Other Superpowers world.
In his spare time he enjoys rock music, drinking too much coffee, tweeting rather a lot, and watching superhero films.
He is also perennially single.
Praise for Sex Drugs and Sausage Rolls:
Real. Heartfelt. Informative. Wow, there are so many words of praise I want to say right now. So well done. You rock!
Haven’t said this yet but honestly, you’re an inspiration – awesome blog, you might have just become my hero xx
Your blog has just been reposted on Facebook by a Maltese politician whom I happen to know. It’s going around the world!
I am who I am. Take me or leave me. Do your worst because I’m very, very strong. I’ve been inspired by the blog of @guy_interruptd
Never really tweeted before-just wanted to say that you have balls for the HIV blog, you have potentially saved someone! X
Your blog is so cute! You’re so cute! Just want to squeeze ya!
I’m cooler than a penguin on skis. <– Epic quote from @guy_interruptd ‘s new blog post just got me LOLing.
Just started following @guy_interruptd. Mostly because I want to have sex with his eyebrows. And also ‘cause his blog is good too.
I adore that @guy_interruptd has EXACTLY hit upon how I feel about Twitter. Read his blog, y’all – http://bit.ly/afwcR3
The verdict is in: EPIC.
So please keep coming back, and if you want me clogging up your social media timelines with my daily musings, you can always follow me on Twitter.
Thanks for reading, see you back here soon,
