SCREENPLAYS AND TV PILOTS

I specialise in crime thriller and horror, but some of my screenplays have a more personal story to them. The Dead Depart Westwards was conceived during a bout of depression and I poured all of my thoughts and feeling onto the page. All my screenplays contain elements from my life, be it a character based on someone I know or a situation I've experienced. This helps my writing feel unique to me and hopefully my voice comes across.
