Les Zig is an author and screenwriter.
As an author, he has four books out: the novella, The Shadow in the Wind (Pinion Press 2019) under his YA moniker of “Lazaros Zigomanis’; and the novels August Falling (Pantera Press 2018); Just Another week in Suburbia (Pantera Press 2017); and Pride (Busybird Publishing 2017 – again as ‘Lazaros Zigomanis’). Each story deals with difficult choices characters face, and how struggles can either shape our lives for the better or see us stagnate and decline.
After a long break from screenwriting, Les has returned to the form and is fast making a name for himself. He’s had three screenplays optioned, and a raft of unproduced screenplays place and shortlist in various awards. His stories range across different genres, employing real-life situations gone awry, layered characters, and sharp dialogue.
For Les, story is paramount. If the story is sound – however fantastical the premise might be – then everything will else will fall into place.
He’s also had short stories and articles published in a range of print and digital journals.
