I grew up near Southampton and have lived in London since 1987. I worked for six years on puzzle magazines, checking the puzzles and writing introductions which vastly improved my general knowledge and gave me a love of clever solutions. I have been teaching English in a Further Education college since the mid-90s and have always enjoyed writing. Over the years I’ve written several novels that still occupy the third drawer down. I did a bit of stand-up comedy for a year (but couldn’t manage the late nights!) and have been performing in am dram productions since 2016. My aim is to write well-plotted comedies that make the audience think a bit and laugh a lot, and give the cast interesting characters to play with everyone getting decent lines. I’d like to thank Smiths Scripts for giving me a chance.
