I have come late to screenwriting having had a career in telecoms, non-profits and animation. Having completed an 8-part historical drama - BEAUTIFUL BODIES, and secured an arrangement with Diplomat Television, I've moved on to explore new projects. My latest work is a UK-based low budget feature - BACK TO BOLTON - which I'm currently polishing up. I'm also wondering why I'm finding the letter "B" so captivating.
