That's enough 'talking' in the third person! Here's a little bit more about me from a different perspective...
It is always my goal to write high quality and original entertainment. I love the quirky visual and story styles of Tim Burton, Luc Besson and Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
While I have a particular passion for macabre tales, romances and dark adventures with a glimmer of hope (there’s light at the end of the tunnel, after all!), I am always happy to explore avenues that are not my usual. To any project I work on I bring a professional approach; an open mind, enthusiasm, imagination, respect for others and respect for deadlines.
I happily retreat to my ‘writer’s cave’, but equally love being out in the fresh air. I love exploring the epic terrain of the moors and discovering blankets of moss and gnarly trees.
I organise monthly meetings of the Screenwriters' and Storytellers' Group at Plymouth College of Art. I live with my family, which include two humans, a dog and a range of chickens.
