Daran Little joined the Coronation Street production team in 1989 as official archivist. He joined the writing staff in 2000, and by the time he left Granada in 2006 he had scripted ninety-five episodes (including a double episode co-written with Peter Whalley). He returned for a six-month period in 2009 for a further nine episodes making 104 in total. Daran is also a prolific Street fiction and non-fiction writer, having penned two prequel novels, the 35th and 40th anniversary companions, and four other Coronation Street reference books.

He was also hired by ABC Television in the United States of America to be a creative consultant on popular daytime soap All My Children.
