Kaye has worked as a journalist/presenter/producer/fund-raiser and writer in theatre, factual television and media for several years (BBC News, ITN, Channel 4 News) and has written twelve books several of which are screenplays.
She has been hired chiefly because of her excellent organisational and project management skills. Working in theatre as a script consultant, prompt and assistant set-designer, she has raised funds through international businesses, local communities and online, while she has also applied her savvy business awareness to marketing and promotion of the work being produced. She has also provided set photography for theatre productions as well as producing and staging her own stage play 'One Small Step' by adapting John Bunyan's 'The Pilgrim's Progress' into the style of Baz Luhrmann's 'Moulin Rouge'.
Having earned an MA in psychotherapy, Kaye’s published work deals mainly with the psychology of depression, anxiety and relationships. However, she combines her knowledge of psychology with her media production and business skills by creating stories centred on low-budget family-based dramatic scripts with romance and comedy thrown into the mix. See her work listed in the credits below.
You'll see that Kaye is not a woman to rest on her laurels. Currently, she is developing the following:
- 3 scripts (a thriller, a sci-fi and a personal memoir - all with female leads)
- 3 factual books on 'how to be an author' - which she's turning into an online course
- collecting her short stories together - to be published on Valentine's Day
- publishing and promoting another author's work from her own small-press publishing platform
Writers, Producers, Directors, Kaye is passionate about all aspects of the film and publishing process and is happy to assist with editing/advising on scripts, promotion/marketing and raising funds. She can give diagnostic feedback (genre/premise, structure/style, characters, dialogue, production budget/location considerations and overall comments). More to the point, if you're working on a small budget, she'll be happy with a film credit. Although, if you insist on funding her wine cellar, then a small percentage of the profits generated is appreciated.

Harry Dennison, by Steve Kemp
Name: Kaye Bewley
Lives in: London, England
Occupation: Author, Playwright, Screenwriter and Script Consultant
Unique traits: Just an ordinary woman living an ordinary life in a very confusing world - and writing about it. I love books, films and MANkind (men note: I think you're doing brilliantly, so please don't apologise for being, well, male!). I'm also one of those dying breeds that loves the lessons found in Paul's New Testament. I like to get to the point, quickly (so I may come across as a bit blunt) because I think life is way too short. What I am not, is a feminist.

Heather is an intelligent single woman in her 50s who hates her job and has created a fantasy romance to get her through it.

Heather juggles her fantasy-world with the reality that’s being forced upon her – with dire consequences.
Book of Songs
Print (Drama, Romance and Music) Author This book of 58 songs and poems has been collected from my files over the years since 1980. If you’d like to option any of them for your own songs, and put them to your own music, please get in touch with me, Kaye Bewley, at email@example.com and I’ll get in touch with you just as soon as I can. I’ve put the songs and poems in this book in date order. From my early (immature) work from 1980 through to 2008 where it becomes a little more sophisticated and spiritual. I make no apologies for this. You have the whole selection. First, I wrote poems about the thrill and the pain of love. Then I turned my psychological awareness onto the wider world and wrote most in the style of songs and even put some to music. My later work, you will see, turns more spiritual in nature. Through this collection, you will see how the work matures as it grows from the heart hurt experienced in the innocence of love, through to a woman who knows how love really works - and loves herself as she is. I trust you will enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. Kaye Bewley
