Christian O'Connell - Author

Christian O'Connell is a multi-award winning broadcaster who hosts commercial radio's biggest breakfast show, on Absolute Radio. He is also a touring stand up comedian with several sold out National tours and three critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival shows. He has presented TV shows on Sky1, ITV and C5. He is married and a self-proclaimed 'shabby dad' to two daughters and lives in Surrey with two dogs.

On writing his debut, Radio Boy, Christian says: "I spent eight months writing this book in every spare moment. At one sad point, my wife and kids all went off for a week skiing, while I booked a room at my local Travelodge. I actually requested the room with the worst view, for fewer distractions. (It’s room 9 by the way, if you ever want to check it out, at the Dorking Travelodge: it overlooks half the car park.) I would get there at nine in the morning, write till four, then leave, never staying the night. I had post it notes all over the walls. They must have thought I was some kind of serial killer!"
