As a veteran of the satire circuit, my first book To Be or Not To Be, Innit, a Yoof-Speak Guide to Shakespeare became a best-seller, written from my Bournemouth beach hut.

Since being signed to write a West End musical stage adaptation of the book, I have enjoyed discussing Yoof-Speak and much more on BBC Breakfast, the One Show and Richard and Judy. Also I have featured in regular radio slots on 5 Live and Radio 2 in addition to BBC regional programmes including Coventry, Hull, Wales, Kent and Solent.

After my debut literary festival and the success of my radio series 60 Second Book Break, in addition to my regular writing and media commitments, I now act as a PR consultant for aspiring and established writers.

Regular updates about this and much more will appear on my blog 'News and Views From the Hut.

Martin Baum's 60 second book breaks
Because I successfully self-published To Be or Not To Be, Innit, I’m regularly invited to talk to first-time writers about a nuts and bolts approach to writing, self-promotion, saving money and not being ripped off by industry predators which has led to '60 Second Book Break', which was first broadcast on Forest FM.

"To Be or Not To Be, Innit"
Is an accurately abridged selection of fifteen plays penned by William Shakespeare with a subtle difference; it's written in the language of "the street".
"Oi, Mate, Gimme Some More!"
This is the second book in the series and gives the yoof-speak treatment to all sixteen novels written by Charles Dickens, England's greatest novelist.
