Steve Tasane


As well as being the author of Blood Donors, Steve is a performance poet who has featured at Glastonbury Festival, the 100 Club, Latitude and was writer-in-residence at Battersea Dogs Home. Here’s a video he made for the BBC Battersea Dogs Home series.

His second YA novel Nobody Saw No One will be published by Walker Books in Spring 2015, a gritty, witty modernisation of Oliver Twist, inspired by Steve’s time as writer-in-residence for the Dickens 2012 Bicentennial Celebrations.

He is presently working on the Arts Council supported book THE RISE OF MAIDSTONE UNITED, stationed as resident writer at the club’s Gallagher Stadium.
