About me

Hi. I’m Gav.


Without wanting to state the obvious, I love reading.


I read on the train to work. And I read before I go to bed. And I read in the corner of my living room while Mrs GBR watches Eastenders.


I’m not a pro. By day, I’m a corporate PR for a law firm. I do this entirely for fun, and so I’m driven to think more about what I read.


I also do it to help with my writing. I’ve written a handful of short stories I’m happy with, as well as two novels I’m less happy with (a sentiment every agent I’ve sent them to shares). I’m hoping by the time I get to finishing novel #5, I’ll have something I like. And someone, somewhere will agree.

That’s the ambition.


I live in London with Mrs GBR and my goldfish Theodore. We’re all sickeningly happy.



I've written two novels - The Redundant and Fly on the Wall: a Story by 35 Stockwell Road. Both are (of course) unpublished, but if you fancy a read, give me a shout at or @Gavcollins9


Oh, and then there's the Legal Support Network blogs. Riveting stuff, I promise.
