I first met John Foyer in 2011 when he was writing a book on the history of radio and TV.
I’d been a regular listener of his podcast The Boondocks since its inception, so I had known him for many years.
I’d never heard of John before we met, but he was clearly a knowledgeable and thoughtful man.
I was intrigued by the idea of talking about his career and the book’s subject matter, and I wanted to know more.
I asked him what the best parts of his writing career were, and he told me he’d been working as a writer for the BBC for about 20 years.
The best part was that he’d had his first published book, a series of stories he wrote about himself, published in 2005.
He went on to write two more novels, but was best known for his work on Boondock Street and for his role as an author of comic books, including the first ever, the comic book-based miniseries, Captain Underpants.
It’s hard to say how well he’s doing in his writing.
I’m interested in the fact that he has been writing for over 20 years, and that he’s managed to publish two of his three best-selling books, one in 2017 and one in 2018.
I also wanted to see how his books were doing in the wayback machines.
Foy’s books were published by Random House in 2014, but I was interested in seeing if his work was still relevant.
I went to the website of the RTE archive, and found that John had published a number of books in the same year, and had been writing them for almost a decade.
I knew that the Bubble-Gum Machine would have been the most important one.
