Rohan Gavin is an author and screenwriter based in London.

Rohan is the son of award-winning children's author Jamila Gavin, and he recently became a father himself.

A Q&A with Rohan Gavin

Roald Dahl -- for his wit, warmth and darkness in equal measures.

Sherlock Holmes.

James Bond--like most Englishmen if they were honest.

Knightley & Son book 3 -- I don’t even have a plot for it yet.

The eternal problem of fathers and sons, and the fantasies every child has of what their parents might be capable of, and what they themselves might be capable of too.

When I was writing short screenplays to apply to film school in my early 20’s.

I listen to a lot of music, especially film soundtracks because they get me into the mood of a scene or a character. Music was my first love and it still influences everything I do. I find music is a shortcut to emotion, and for that reason it’s very useful, whether I’m writing something scary or something funny.
15. Do you have any abandoned stories in you ‘bottom drawer’ that you would like to revisit?
I have a large file of ideas and concepts that were originally intended for screenplays, but they might make an appearance in future Knightley instalments
