My new book is out online and now it’s time for a celebratory and very happy physical launch. Hoping to rally all my friends from within the industry and from Filmbase, where I taught screenwriting for nearly 19 years and which, very sadly and shockingly, went into liquidation mid-March.
All are welcome. Mervyenne Jacque has an awesome voice and repertoire of contemporary jazz and it will be an evening to remember. You might even go home with a new book!
And here’s the welcome to my new website part!
Welcome to my new website. Really chuffed to be here with you!
I am the happy author of many books, two of which are now published. Dad’s Red Dress came out in March 2017 and The Angelica Touch was officially launched in Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop on February 8th at 6.30pm and less officially (with lots of dancing) in my favourite cafe, Javaholics, Fairview on March 22nd. There’s a review here if you want to see what it’s all about.
But now it is time to launch my first non-fiction book, on screenwriting.I’m really excited about this. Bit nervous too!
After 21 years teaching people of all ages and abilities how to write scripts, I wanted to write an accessible book to steer people through the stormy seas from wanting to write a script to having the first one down on the page or screen. In Write That Script! there’s enough theory so you know what you’re doing, examples to show you how that theory works and tons of writing exercises to oil the writing muscles that will see you through to the end.
As I was once told, you can’t write your second script until you write your first.
I love creating characters and worlds. It’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. I would truly love to invite you into some of those worlds with me. And, when you’ve been there, do come back and tell me what you thought! I’m also available as a script reader and consultant. You can reach me at email@example.com. (I know. It’s a mouthful. Apologies. I was born with a long name!)
