I started adapting books into plays at eight years old and, after university (BA Hons: Theology and Philosophy), worked as an actor/writer, often devising scripts as well as performing.
Then I did a stint of playwriting at the Tricycle Theatre in London, tutored by award-winning playwright Bonnie Greer.
Now I’m working towards a Master's in Scriptwriting for films, TV, stage and radio at Bath Spa University, so if you want me to write a bespoke script for you, you'll be in safe hands. I also set up a networking group, Scriptwriters Bath & Co, in early 2020, to unite writers and affiliates across the performing arts.
In the last year I’ve penned a witty yet tear-jerking full-length tragicomedy for the stage, two short film scripts and a stylish psychological thriller that's already won three awards at international film festivals. It's nasty, in a good way.
Why not let me create a beautifully, crafted professional script or screenplay for your company? Alternatively, I can lick your own script into shape. And if you're a producer or director, I'd love to talk with a view to collaborating. My agent is Joan Lane at Wild Thyme Productions Ltd.
