I’m a Writer

I love telling stories, to confront my hopes and fears, and to explore what happens when  my characters are confronted with the possibility of change.

Chekhov wrote,

The point of drama is not to provide answers, but to frame the questions correctly.

My hope is to find ways to ask those fascinating questions.

I have written historical drama, biographical drama, adaptations, radio drama, screenplays, episodes of TV series, and of serials, and stage plays. I have written to commission and sold my own original ideas.

If you have an idea come and talk to me. Perhaps we can find a way of framing those questions together?
