About John

Hi everyone! I'm John - I'm a writer focused on screenwriting and I've also published novels and ghostwritten business books. And I'm a bit of a marketing whiz who's worked with some of the world's largest ad agencies.

Valuable Experience
It's that experience of leading creative processes and winning multi-million dollar pitches, combined with my love of storytelling, that makes me excited to be involved in the world of film and TV.

Following The Muse
I write in a variety of genres, from historical biopic to intelligent thrillers, both for film and TV. I believe in following the muse - whatever I'm inspired to write I let it come out as it wants.

Smart Approaches to Production
Some of my material is ideal for developing with established actors and producers, but I'm also working on contained scripts with an eye to launching independent productions. The content drives the production approach.

Good luck with everything you're doing, thanks for reading, and let's connect.
