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 will be officially launched in Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop on February 8th at 6.30pm. Then, in April, it will be time for my first non-fiction, a book on screenwriting.
After 21 years teaching people of all ages and abilities how to write scripts, and mentoring others, 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 the 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. (I know. It’s a mouthful. Apologies. I was born with a long name!)
