Author Bio: I'm Europe's most successful entrant to screenwriting competitions with over 80 wins, 44 being 1st places. In the 14 genres of Moviebyte's Top Ten Winning Scripts (shorts), I'm top of all 14 genres.

My work has been produced and is being produced. I now run a boutique consulting service called "How to Win Short Screenplay Contests". I've accepted invitations to be a jury member of the 11th Marbella International Film Festival, the 2nd London Indie Film Festival, the Paris Art & Movie Awards and The Monkey Bread Tree Film Awards.

Emmy Award winner Miguel Guerreiro selected "Early Release" to be his first English language short. IMBd https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt4179068/?ref_=sch_int. On the international film festival circuit this film has won "Best Script", "Best Short", "Best Crime","Best Actress", "Best Actor" "Jury Merit Award", "Runner-up Best Actor", has been nominated for "Best Cinematography", Best Editing", "Best Film", "Best Performance" and has achieved official film festival selection 31 times.

I've followed up my theatre directing with my film directing debut - the shooting of my latest short screenplay "Belivers" is now a WRAP!

My short screenplay "Death's Lady Love" is in production with Sanford Films in conjunction with Kissing Gate Media. Shooting on location in Maine, USA the film will be launched at Halloween, 2017.

I've optioned two feature scripts and a third is subject to a Shopping Agreement. I have five shorts slated for production and was recently commissioned to write a feature to be shot in Nebraska.

I'm an English published, produced and award-winning playwright turning to film. Most of my staged works featured Royal Shakespeare Company actors and include an award winning regional tour.
