Writers don’t always come from similar educational backgrounds and there are many famous writers who didn’t have a great deal of education and come back to writing later in life. The same cannot be said of Roger however who knew from an early age exactly what he wanted to do. Roger concedes however that whilst he always felt adept at what he could do with his writing, the notion of heading into entertainment wasn’t something which he had considered.
