Interview with the Brent & Kilburn Times

Here is an interview with the Brent & Kilburn Times (despite the headline it is actually quite a positive story!)...

Creation of author is not a hit single
by Max Walters

A budding comedian has released his maiden novel detailing a young man's desperate struggle with the opposite sex.

The Drought by Steven Scaffardi charts the journey of Dan Hilles, who, after coming out of an eight-year relationship, finds the rules of single life have somewhat changed.

Mr Scaffardi, 33, a former sports journalist, explained his reasons behinf penning his own novel.

He said: "It was something I always wanted to do but never quite got round to; I first got the idea for the story after watching television with my girlfriend.

"I would see all these men on chick flicks and think to myself 'guys aren't like that in real life'."

Following the separation from his girlfriend and accompanied by his three equally unhelpful mates, Rob, Jack, and Ollie, Dan attempts to muddle his way through single life facing a number of embarrassing situations along the way.

Mr Scaffardi said: "You hear some great stories from your mates down the pub telling you about the ways they've messed up with girls and I thought it would make a great idea for a book."
