Thinking of writing a book? It’s not all chat shows, award ceremonies and copious amounts of booze – except for the copious amounts of booze. Join My Only Boro author Will Nett as he deals with his stratospheric new-found success – he was on local radio, y’know – and embarks upon ‘difficult second book phase’.

It’s not all chat shows, award ceremonies and copious amounts of booze – except for the copious amounts of booze. Join My Only Boro author Will Nett as he deals with his stratospheric new-found success – he was on local radio, y’know – and embarks upon ‘difficult second book phase’. Stuck for new subject matter, and holding down a series of menial jobs in order to collect new material, he becomes embroiled in a peculiar world of yo-yo dieting, backyard boxing bouts, and religious cults. It’s a wonder he has time for punch-ups on the streets of Paris, upsetting Eurovision song contest winners, and arranging a parking space for potential Prime Ministers… but could he turn any of it into a book? “My Only Boro is a great little book with a witty insight into the history of Teesside past and present. Will writes like a Teesside version of Charlie Brooker!” "Alan Bennett for millennials." "Billy No Maps is full of punchline-fuelled, relentless humour from an excellent travel writer. Very funny." "Watch out David Sedaris." "Will relentlessly indulges himself in his subject matter...be it busting ghosts, being punched out by bare-knuckle boxers, or thwarting his own kidnapping. Join the ride, on paper at least. Riotous stuff." "Like Karl Pilkington on acid." “Crying laughing! Seriously! Anyone from Teesside should read My Only Boro (though perhaps ‘Teesside’ is questionable?). Full of local facts sprinkled with down to earth Boro humour at it’s best.” Will Nett is 'about 40' and from Middlesbrough. He has written three books, although he claims to have read many. He'd rather be doing anything else other than writing; planting sugar cane, throwing people out of cinemas or trying to sell you a portable Sudoku machine, incidentally all things he's done in the past, with varying degrees of success, hence his writing. When he's doing anything else, he's usually thinking about writing. His global appeal and general popularity have seen his writing career straddle two Millennia, and, uncharacteristically for a writer, Will has no plans to shoot himself just yet. He tries to remain neutral for the good of his work but has had several arguments/fights in all corners of the globe concerning the sheer greatness of his hometown. He also swears a lot. Seriously. Loads. He is an incurable backpacker, occasional banjo picker and habitual note-maker/taker, most of which have found their way into his Gonzo-steeped works, My Only Boro: A Walk Through Red & White, and his riotous travelog, Billy No Maps: A Teessider On Tour. As a Northerner he is rarely seen without a flat cap, always expects rain, and maintains robust opinions on the price of alcohol in London, which he visits twice a year to 'do author stuff'. He is multi-lingual, speaking English, and a feral approximation of what he says is French.

    Absolutely hilarious. Well worth a read during your lunch break and reflect that that there is always someone who has a worse boss than you. You don’t need to be local nor interesting in writing to enjoy this tale, you just need to have a sense of humour.
