Review of 2016: David McCaffrey

It was a pleasure meeting David McCaffrey when he travelled all the way from Teeside to North Shields to see Elementary Writers perform at Old Low Light. David will be performing at Noir at the Bar NE on 22nd February, 2017. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to review your 2016, David!

Do you have a favourite memory professionally from 2016?
I think the moment I realised the project I was working on with Stephen Sayers was really coming together was perhaps my favourite professional moment. It was a project very special to him and I wanted to do it right for him, so at the moment when you read something back and think ‘that’s not bad!’ was pretty special. That said, being added to the guest list for Noir at the Bar 2017 in Newcastle was pretty special too!


And how about a favourite moment from 2016 generally?
Sitting in a cinema watching ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘! Waited my whole life to see those two together on the big screen! Although seeing the ‘Wonder Woman’ trailer for the first time was pretty cool too!

Favourite book in 2016?
The Cleaner‘ – Mark Dawson.

Favourite film in 2016?
As above!

Favourite song of the year?
Hmm, possibly Calvin Harris/Rihanna ‘This Is What You Came For’.

Any downsides for you in 2016?
Realising that I had mental health issues which was also an upside as I was able to seek help.

Are you making resolutions for 2017?
Write more, hopefully start a publishing business with Kelly.

What are you hoping for from 2017?
To have success with the project with Stephen and hopefully write a story that really captivates readers. By Britain’s Next Bestseller…yeah, that’ll do!
