David Court is a Writer, Software Developer and Husband, and says he is competent at two out of three of those. He is also one of Elementary Whatson’s reviewers and a wizard at finding his way around the Wix website!

David lives in Coventry with his wife and an ever-growing beard and is a freelance writer for Ginger Nuts of Horror, a presenter at Noisebox Radio, and used to write for Slash Film. David's wife Tara once asked him if he'd write about how great she was. David replied that he would, because he specialized in short fiction. Despite that, they are still married.

Meet the founders of Elementarywhatson


Barbara has been a reporter, feature writer and reviewer for local newspapers for nearly 40 years. During that time she has been lucky enough to be in the audience for some truly memorable performances and, in retirement, aspires to writing her own plays. In recent years, thanks to the support of a charitable organisation, she has published two novels aiming to reduce the stigma and inject a little humour into the serious business of mental illness. These are Knock Knock, Who's There? and Knocking on Haven's Door. Her latest book is a delightful children's book - Jerry's Great Escape.

Peter was a feature writer with the Coventry Evening Telegraph for 19 years, before leaving in 1997 to join a new tourism agency being set up for Coventry. He later worked as a senior manager for CVOne, the city centre management, events and tourism company that launched the Godiva Festival, among many other things. He’s written two books about the history of the city and is working on a third.


Steve Chilton is a journalist whose earlier jobs included lasting one week as a stage-hand at The Belgrade during its first panto season. 

He survived longer in journalism, spending more than 25 years in regional newspapers, and national titles as a freelance.

Steve ​had a long and hugely enjoyable association with the Coventry Telegraph where he ​was at various times reporter, news and features editor and ​columnist of the off-beat Peeping Tom and Red Button.He published his first work of fiction recently: 'Walking Keef's Dog, and other Short Stories'.


In 40 years as a journalist, Charles has been a reporter, feature writer, sub-editor and chief sub; he launched a tragically short-lived sports paper in Liverpool, and was deputy editor of the Coventry Telegraph. Now happily retired, he is media volunteer for the Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre, and helps former colleagues to set up theatre review websites - when not being forced by his wife to go on holiday.
