Les Zig is a novelist, screenwriter, and speaker.
He has three published novels: Just Another Week in Suburbia (Pantera Press 2017), explores the questions of trust, fidelity, and how well you can ever truly know another person; while August Falling (Pantera Press 2018) is a story about unconditional acceptance, reclaiming the past, and finding a way forward.
As ‘Lazaros Zigomanis’, he wrote the YA novel Song of the Curlew (Pinion Press 2019), a story about dreams, coming of age, community, love, and racism. It has been described by best-selling Young Adult author George Ivanoff as ‘an extraordinary book.’
Les is also the writer and director behind the half-hour satire mockumentary Little Diva Rising, which has met with great success on the independent festival circuit; the web series The Abnorms, a preternatural take on life in lockdown during the pandemic; and the award-winning action short, The Other Side of Paradise.
He's an optioned screenwriter and has had a raft of unproduced screenplays place in over one hundred competitions. His stories and articles have also been published extensively.
