And welcome to Scriptwriting in the UK, the gateway into my screenwriting world.

It all started with my old blog back in 2005 as I shared my experiences as an industry script reader and emerging writer. This new site will now be the focus for ongoing news, features, opportunities and personal anecdotes/insights.

I’ve been a screenwriter/consultant since 2001. My television writing credits include EastEnders, Doctors and high-profile children’s shows such as Octonauts, Fleabag Monkeyface, Roy, and the new Thunderbirds for CiTV. I also write/direct (my supernatural thriller, Origin, won Best Horror at the London Independent Film Festival 2012), and I’ve co-written/directed the live-action children’s film Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg? with Tim Clague.

As part of my ongoing passion with the world of screenwriting, I created and co-host the UK Scriptwriters Podcast. In 2007, I helped set up the Red Planet Prize, a scheme to discover new writers, with writer/producer Tony Jordan.

If you want to learn more about me, my work or if you’re looking for help to get started as a screenwriter then you’ve come to the right place. My script reading details are here, and some handy free downloads about screenwriting/script reading can be found here but check out the blog for all the latest updates.
