Hi, I’m Shaun and I make a living out of writing about people who grow gardens on their car rooftops and other crazy stories, I also mess around on our blogging world during the day and play on Facebook, , and Twitter. You may also have seen me bouncing on a trampoline in a lion costume, but that story is for another day. These days when I’m not writing for RedShed you’ll probably find me following the shifting fortunes of Nottingham Forest. Come and say hi!​
