Tony Mortimer is a former member of the band East 17, an English pop band formed in 1991, took some time out of his busy schedule to read a few werewolf short stories during the Covid-19 lockdown. One would think that for Tony to read a book of classic werewolf tales from the early nineteenth century that he is an avid reader of horror literature.
This is not the case, however. Turns out that Tony is somewhat new to reading and he loves it. Tony did not read his first novel until he turned 50 years old. He now wants to pay it forward by getting young boys into reading and by writing his own novel. This is certainly an admirable cause for the Ivor Novello-winning songwriter.
Tony read many other popular books during the Covid pandemic, including Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None; The Flower Girls by Alice Clark Platts; The Best Werewolf Short Stories 1800-1849 by Andrew Barger; The Fear Bubble by Ant Middleton. Oscar Wilde’s Complete Short Stories; JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone; Lady in Waiting by Anne Glenconner; Stephen King’s On Writing.
