Profile

Short Bios

I was born in England and spent my childhood in Ireland. I moved to California in my teens. I studied journalism at Rancho Santiago College in Santa Ana, California, and worked in the aerospace industry as a writer, graphic artist, desktop publisher, and newsletter editor.

 

My Fantasy/Adventure titled ASHLING won Best Screenplay in the Fantasy Category in the 2015 Table Read My Screenplay Contest - Park City (out of nearly 1,000 entries) and has been nominated for the Culture & Heritage Award in the 2016 Fresh Voices Screenplay Contest.

 

The Irish Film Board compared ASHLING to Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, Harry Potter, Narnia, Brave, and Beowulf (Irish Film Board Readers' Reports, 2015). 

 

ASHLING was a finalist in the 2016 Wexford Film Festival in Ireland. 

 

My Action/Thriller script NO QUARTER was a Quarter Finalist in the 2015 FilmMakers International Screenwriting Awards (out of 1,761 entries).


My screen adaptation of Pigs Is Pigs by Ellis Parker Butler was published in the 2015 anthology of the California Writers Club, High Desert branch.


I teach a beginning screenwriters workshop for members of the High Desert Branch of the California Writers Club in Apple Valley, California.
