Welcome to my website. Take a look around.

Cuppa? What d’you take?

I write stories for performance – on stage, screen, or audio.

My stories explore the darkness and light of what it means to be human. They invite audiences to feel, question, confront, connect.

I’m winner of the Kenneth Branagh Award for New Drama Writing (2016), a member of Sheffield Theatres Writers’ Group (2018) and Fuse programme (2016), and Playwrights One development programme at West Yorkshire Playhouse (2016). I’ve been shortlisted for the OffWestEnd.com Adopt a Playwright award (2017) and long-listed for The Old Vic 12 (2016). My play The Space Between was produced by Windsor Fringe (2016) and staged as script-in-hand readings by Stephen Joseph Theatre (2017) and Script Yorkshire (2016). My play Dark Psyche was staged as a script-in-hand reading by Beach Hut Theatre Company (2017). My new play Warrior Queens was part of Second Stage, a new writing showcase at Stephen Joseph Theatre (2018).

I’m writer and narrator for SubSeaTV, an award-winning wildlife filmmaking team, and I’m a winner and finalist in two short screenplay competitions.

Hands you a cuppa…

Go on. Have a nosey. Check out my stories in the blog or on the writing page…
