Lifelong science fiction fan Andrew Wallace has combined storytelling skills honed over years of scriptwriting for the BBC and feature films with a hunger for all things thrilling to create a unique and compelling future world in his novel ‘Diamond Roads’.
It’s the story of resourceful young Charity Freestone, her family, friends and enemies as they brave the terrifying wonders of subterranean Diamond City in the twenty-fourth century.
Unflinching, darkly humorous and charged with mysterious eroticism, the book is an invitation to readers bold and imaginative enough to take the next step into the future.
Following stage productions of his plays ‘Byron’ and ‘The Scissors Angel’ Andrew’s Radio 4 play ‘Burn Your Phone’ was nominated for a Writer’s Guild Award and turned into a feature on BBC2. He followed commissions for the feature-length script of acclaimed short ‘The Cutter’ and an adaptation of the novel ‘As Good As It Gets’ with the BBC7 show ‘Wonderworld’ and wrote regularly for Radio 4’s flagship comedy ‘Look Away Now’. He has produced three Edinburgh shows including ‘The Free Three’ and ‘Seething Is Believing’ and created the ‘Vengeance’ and ‘Bloody Mary’ shows for the London Dungeon.
