A little about me
earned my living exclusively from writing since the age of 18 (and that
was a long time ago!). I began as a junior reporter on my local evening
newspaper, graduated to writing for national newspapers and local radio
stations as a Press Agency news and sports reporter, then moved into
television as a Promotions Scriptwriter and subsequently Promotions
became a freelance writer in 1979, since when I have notched up over
2000 TV credits as writer, script editor and programme associate for ITV,
BBC, Channel 4, Five, Sky One and RTE, working in just about every
genre known to television. I wrote my first corporate script back in
1982 and have continued to work in that area ever since, and since 1992
I have been devising and running Creative Writing workshops for
students of all ages.
am a full member of the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain www.writersguild.org.uk
and the National Association of Writers in Education www.nawe.co.uk.
