I'm Carm-el to my British and US friends but in Australia I am called plain old Carmaul.
I have been putting words to paper for a life time especially when I want to protest about an injustice. I can't stand people whinging about their lot in life, do something, anything but please don't just complain as though someone else has to solve your problems.
I have written and published three true stories about pioneers of Australia and probably would have continued with publishing a fourth novel this year until I discovered screenplay writing. I am absolutely hooked on international competitions where I don't have to spend all my time marketing the finished product. This being my first year of screen writing, I did not expect to receive any laurels and to actually get into finals, has been fantastic for the recognition alone.
Hope to share my enthusiasm for this medium with you all in the future months. Cheers Carmel
Oh, I guess you might like to know more about me?
Well I am old enough and wise enough not to share my age but I have had cancer four times in my life and I am still here. I hope one day my life can inspire someone like the protagonist pioneering characters that I write about. I believe this will fulfil my purpose in life.
