I write Family/Fantasy and Supernatural Thriller/Horror, fiction and screenplays.
WERETEEN (Family), FLAT SQUIRREL (Animation), TWIN FLAMES (Family, Romance), EXCAVATION (Horror, Thriller).
FLAT SQUIRREL, the novel, is out now on Amazon (paperback and Kindle) and eBook on other platforms.
I graduated from University of Reading (UK) in 2010 with BSc in IT, and I also hold a BSc (Technology) from the Open University. I started working life in the European music business, theatre and TV, with a company that provided sound and lighting effects.
Lifelong Learning: I study with Stage 32 and Jacob Krueger's studio in NY. About to take a course with Corey Mandell.
Besides my passion for the written word, I like the movies, and science 'n techy stuff. I like Hollywood movies, the old 'Ealing comedies' and European and South American cinema.
I live in Totnes in Devon which attracts writers and artists, wizards and weirdos from all over. Twinned with Narnia and a bit oldy-worldy, it is connected to the great Interwebs, although mobile networks have holes in them. No signals from outer space here (unless you're a hippy. Ha.).
Secret wishes: Big hair.
