Brian Beacom Book and Novel

Brian Beacom - Author


Brian Beacom is Senior Features Writer for the Herald and Times Group in Glasgow. He has written two celebrity biographies and is currently working on his third, and a book of (allegedly) hilarious theatre stories, that will 'shake the very core of Scottish theatre society', in a gentle, nudging, luvvy sort of way. He lives in the Renfrewshire village of Kilmacolm with two cats, Effie and Simba, who were dumped upon him when his partner moved in. His interest in hair recovery, he claims, is only bordering on the obsessive.
