Screenwriting Background

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. I work regularly with different studios, production companies, theatres, authors and businesses up and down the country.

Highlights of my career so far have included being commissioned by Lego to write an original comedy series for kids, winning awards for the films I’ve worked on, and sell out theatre shows. Also, very recently, a novel I edited got in the Amazon top 10 bestseller list!

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. 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.
