ABOUT ME
I am a versatile freelance writer, novelist and scriptwriter from the seaside town of Worthing, near Brighton, on the South Coast of England where the sun sometimes shines, but it mostly rains. I can put my hand to any type of writing, including scripts for TV, radio, film and stage, novels, comedy sketches, short stories, gags and letters to the milkman. My key attributes are:

Being able to seamlessly cross genres with ease, writing for comedy and drama in any format, whether it be for TV, radio, film, print, stage, digital or web. 100% dedicated to the craft, I live and breathe writing.

An abundance of ideas constantly entering my head. I will never have writer's block. Once one project is completed, it's quickly onto the next.

Forward thinking with ideas and storylining. While some writers may create a pilot script and then struggle to gather further ideas for a complete series, my initial idea for a show soon transcends into enough storylines for several episodes and beyond.
