Need to hire a writer?

Comedy writing is my passion, but I also enjoy writing thrillers, drama, horror, adventure and action scripts. I enjoy collaborating, take constructive criticism on board in a positive manner, and thrive under deadline pressure.

I’m passionate about maximising the potential of a story. My strength lies in turning your film, TV show, play into something utterly compelling.

If you’d like me on your writing team, either as your main writer or an editor, why not get in touch for a chat about your project. You can contact me here.

How I got into Screenwriting

I have been writing professionally for many years. I got my first agent, Bob Tanner at International Scripts Ltd, when I was 20. I was in the third year of my BA, studying languages and literature at the University of Nottingham, while Bob submitted my manuscripts for me.

Fast forward to 2012 and I decided to go freelance to write full time. Armed with an MA in literature, several published works of fiction, a regular newspaper column, and a wealth of script and copy writing experience, I found myself in the terrifying position of pitching to the then BBC commissioner. I was woefully underprepared and said some pretty crazy stuff, but I have since benefitted from the lesson I learned that day! 

My agent is now the fabulous Rob Wilkinson at Red Talent Management. Please get in touch with him or me for all new commission enquiries.
