I write for the Guardian, primarily about London and its politics. I keep a blog (Dave Hill's London Blog), produce frequent comment pieces (mostly for Comment is Free) and also make podcasts and films. I've lived near Clapton Pond in since 1992 and in other parts of Hackney since 1981. I am married to Sheila Fitzsimons, the Guardian's Head of Editorial Development, have six children ranging in age from 25 to seven, and have been writing for a living for nearly 30 years. My fourth and most recent novel is The Adoption, published by Headline Review.
