Born in 1969 in Durham, England, I’m the mother of two spirited teenagers and a freelance Screenwriter and short-story writer living in Preston, Lancashire. I’m a passionate and enthusiastic storyteller, and enjoy the challenge of bringing fictional characters the resolutions they need. I’m an award winning screenwriter and have had both poetry and short stories published in copy and online.
I enjoy writing in all forms but have had particular success with scriptwriting. I was lead writer on Independent feature film ‘The Blackout’ which is currently doing the film festival circuit and was selected for the Lisbon International Film Festival.
In 2014 I won the Northern Rail Safety award for my short film entitled ‘Don’t Lose the Race’ which was used as part of their national rail safety campaign.
My current ‘works in progress’ also include a contemporary women’s novel and a multi-genre feature film.
I graduated in 2015 year with a First Class Honours degree in Creative Writing and Film & TV Screenwriting from Preston’s University of Central Lancashire where I have completed modules in poetry, short story writing, article writing to commission, TV screenwriting, Life and autobiographical writing and Film writing.
I’m writer/producer for Wasp Video.
