Series 2, Episode 18

This week we interviewed former English teacher, author, poet, playwright and stage director BJ Edwards.

BJ has been writing for a number of years, but since completely losing his sight in 2012 he's released Stalking the Shadows, the first book in his Ancient Desstiny series, and more recently, Tesserae, a book of poetry.

We interviewed BJ in his home near Wolverhampton.
