Over the next six months, Roger and I will be developing my project, INVASION, a coming-of-age story based on family experience, set in WW2 Llandudno...

Old Faces, New Beginnings...

Welcome to my writing blog.  I started my career in TV drama many moons ago, as a development executive at independent Zenith Productions, where I script-edited Hamish Macbeth (series 2 & 3), among other shows.

In the 2000s, I branched out as a scriptwriter on long-running series such as EastEnders, Casualty, and Heartbeat.  The last few years have been consumed by family responsibility (as I have discussed on my other blog, Dementia Just Ain't Sexy); but after that unintentional break, I'm returning to the fray!

I'll be posting here about new projects in due course.  In the meantime, check out a few classic moments from past work in the YouTube links on the right…
