…and thanks for visiting my site.

I am based in the North-East of England, where I spend most of my time either writing or planning what I’m going to write next. I write all kinds of things for all kinds of media; stageplays, screenplays, books, articles, reviews, short stories, and I also take photos to accompany my writing, as well as for pleasure.

In addition, I own and write for Shakespeare Does, which provides unique, personalised, handcrafted items, in the style of Shakespearean sonnets – perfect for lovers of literature and ideal as gifts.

I also work as an actor, director, producer and presenter. I produce work with my own production company, Cranked Anvil, which was founded in 2012, as well as taking on other freelance work for and with other companies both in the North-East and around the country.

All my latest news and announcements – as well as the odd random blog – can be found on my news page, and if you want to know a bit more about me and my background, have a look at my about page or click my photo to the right.

You can contact me by using the contacts page of this website.

Press enquiries should hopefully find my media kit page useful.

Hope you enjoy browsing my site, and find what you need.
