“The meteor was supposed to hit the humans not the dinosaurs…”

Joseph Solar was born in the city of Manchester, England – it was a village back then.
He has worked for over fifteen years as a freelance scriptwriter for conferences and promotional films and has provided the voice and animation for a cartoon character called Oscar, used as a presenter in conferences and exhibitions. The work took him to events and seminars around the world, scripting and presenting for a range of prestigious clients.

His half-hour black comedy, Sacred Ground has been broadcast on UK’s Granada Television and was followed by three comedy plays:

Bang On Time: A meteor is heading for earth and a new-world organisation has plans for the future until they find a guided missile in the locker room.

Bite Marks: A touring sketch show presenting farcical scenes from day-to-day life.

Oh What a Night: A musical about a struggling clubland singer who tries one last time to make a success of her singing career.

His latest book, Small Changes, is a collection of short stories about how people’s lives can change on seemingly insignificant events. It is available in paperback and Amazon Kindle.

Currently, he is writing a realism-fantasy novel:

A scientist, Richard Jakes meets a woman who claims to be a fairy. He thinks she’s deluded of course but what he learns will challenge everything he believes about reality.

Joseph is also developing a comedy screenplay about a private detective investigating the loss of rare historical artefacts which nobody seems to care about. It could be the detective’s most intriguing case; it could be his only case.
