Martin Foreman is the author of two novels, two short story collections and several plays, all available from Arbery Books.
He is the winner of the 2012 London Solo Festival New Writing Award and the 2018 Pitlochry Festival Theatre Short Play Award. In August 2018 he is directing two of his plays - his
adaptation of Ben Jonson's Jacobean comedy Volpone and a new one-act drama Casanova Dreaming - at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Martin was born in Dundee, went to school and university in Edinburgh, then spent many years working and living in London and across the world.
He has returned to live in Edinburgh and does not expect to move far from the city again. He dislikes categories but for those who insist
on them, he is a British writer who happens to be gay and whose primary themes are love, loss and the intensity of emotions. As well as writing, he
acts occasionally on stage and in short films.
