Dave Blake co-wrote Brighton Til I Die! – a play celebrating the centenary of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, The Belated Happy Birthday Mr Bowie Show which he also directed, and a series of football / barbershop-related monologues called Chair Talk for BBC Southern Counties Radio. In 2008 he had his first book The Football Fans Quizbook published. His second book, The Random Book of…David – a shameless stocking-filler for people with that name – was published in October 2009 – and a couple of years later wrote The Random Book of… Thomas (under the pen-name of Tommy Latrobe). Dave is also the originator of The Random Book of… series of books.
