Hayden Gribble was born in the dizzy hot summer of 1989. He spent his formative years being small and loud and absorbing the television of yesteryear through repeats of the Gerry Anderson Supermarionation series, Doctor Who, The Simpsons, Red Dwarf and Dad’s Army. He was also mesmerised by the James Bond film series and the action cartoons of the late 1980s and early 1990s. As adulthood dawned he had tried to pass himself off as an adult by writing for a number of publications such as the Doctor Who Appreciation Society newszine, Celestial Toyroom, music writer for B-Side Magazine, Features and Vortextra contributor to Doctor Who Online and working as a football writer for goal.com.

He has also spent brief spells writing for local newspapers Haverhill Echo and Bury Free Press. In 2012, he wrote and self-published his first novel, The Man in the Corner, as an e-book on Amazon.co.uk. He followed this up with a collection of poems and lyrics from his teenage years called Tales From Another Me, released as a kindle book in 2015.

He has also written, presented and been the main culprit of two podcasts, Nothing in Particular and the Classic TV Podcast. Now he resides at the Diddly Dum Podcast and since 2016 has hosted his own show, Podcasters Royale: The James Bond 007 Show.

His latest work will be released in 2017 and 2018.
