A Q&A with Simon David Eden

Q. Education

A. I was expelled from my first senior school for failing to attend. The local woods and wildlife were a lot more friendly and interesting! I was then sent to Moulsecoomb School - on the (then) notorious council estate where I lived. It was pretty wild. Wood chisels were thrown, a class was set on fire, there were bare-knuckle fights pretty much every day, and that was just the girls! In my mid-twenties I earned a scholarship to study film at the Royal College of Art. Still proud of my MA Distinction and grateful to Prof. Dick Ross for taking a leap of faith.



‘Cool’, and ¿dígame? – the latter I picked up while living in Mallorca. It’s what the locals say when they answer the phone. Literally: Tell me, speak to me. I use it everywhere but on the phone.

Spiderman; Santiago in Coelho’s ‘The Alchemist’; Terry Malloy in Budd Shulberg’s ‘On the Waterfront’; Oskar in Jonathan Safran Foer’s ‘Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close’. All flawed, all trying to find themselves while struggling with weighty moral dilemmas.

H Mortimer Batten, Paulo Coelho, Lewis Carroll, Jonathan Carroll, J K Rowling, Hans Christian Andersen, Stan Lee, Raymond Carver, Betty Smith, the poet Rumi, I could go on…

Write from the heart-mind. (see The Savage Kingdom for more detail!)
