I also work in the commercial sector and specialise in script doctoring, particularly helping to revive flagging scripts and adding humour. Please check my writing testimonials file for happy client comments, many from PPH and similar sites.
I began by writing comedy for the BBC and Channel 4, gaining many commissions I have had my own nine part TV comedy series broadcast in 2011 (UK STAR), a BBC radio pilot in 2012 and a series of comedy monologues on BBC Scotland in 2014. My first stage musical was produced in London in 2013. I have recently completed my first animated feature film for an Australian client.
I am currently commissioned to work on two feature films, one theatrical musical and an animated emusical. I am also currently signed with a major publisher and my first comedy novel is now published. 'Detective Strongoak and the Case of the Dead Elf'.
As a former university lecturer in scriptwriting I also carry out script editing and 'doctoring' on every type of project, including plays and films and books (especially ebooks) and whilst working in script development for an Indy I have made useful contacts throughout the broadcasting industry.
I am also a former research scientist with some 60 publications and I have a wide range of experience in writing technical material, especially in medical and life science areas.
