Who is Dave Roberts?

Dave Roberts has been one of those annoying bike couriers, a security guard, a Civil Servant, a KFC chef who was fired for trying to steal a sample of the secret recipe and a train driver - all before reaching 20. After that, he settled for a career in advertising, which was eventually cut short by illness - but not before accidentally winning a Silver Lion at Cannes.

His first book, e-luv: an internet romance came out in 2006 and was followed by The Bromley Boys (which was made into a film) two years later.

In 2011, his third book, 32 Programmes was published and was shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year. Sad Men, the tale of Dave's disastrous attempts to climb the advertising ladder came out in March 2014.

His last book, Home and Away, came out in August 2016 and tells the story of coming back to the UK after 35 years and finding that everything has changed - including his football team, who have suddenly become successful. Dave is currently working on book number seven, which, unsurprisingly, is about Bromley FC.

His loves (aside from his family) include Bromley Football Club, the music of Saint Etienne, Eastenders and Golden Retrievers.

His favourite books are Our Man in Havana by Graham Greene, The Adventures of Goodnight & Loving by Leslie Thomas, Rain Men by Marcus Berkmann and anything by Guy Bellamy. More recently, One Day by David Nicholls, The Drowning of Arthur Braxton by Caroline Smailes, and Wonder by RJ Palacio.

Dave has three children: Hazel and Bill, who both live near Birmingham, and Frank, who is in New Zealand. Dave and his wife Liz live in Menston, not far from Leeds.

Other Dave Robertses

If you're looking for the author of How the Church Corrupts the Message of Jesus or Red Moon Rising, you'd better try Google, since they're by a different Dave Roberts entirely.
