Dark Sense feature project

The feature film DARK SENSE completed its six-week shoot in May 2017. For this project I adapted Peter Flannery's excellent Kindle-published bestseller, FIRST AND ONLY, into the DARK SENSE screenplay, along with Geoff Holder. Director Magnus Wake and producer Simone Bett have done a tremendous job bringing all the elements of this production together and the finished feature film is excellent. The movie has had a fantastic run on the international film festival circuit, screening in some of the highest-profile festivals in the USA and picking up Best International Film Award at the SENE Film Festival in New England. In August it will screen at the Chichester Film Festival and the prestigious FrightFest in London's Leicester Square!

Spy thriller feature project

I'm currently developing a feature film script with Weiwei Si and it's now at an advanced stage. Weiwei, of Brainstorm Films, was previously first unit 1st AD on the Jackie Chan movie Bleeding Steel and directed all 24 episodes of a comedy sci-fi series for Chinese TV.

I recently stood down as the Scotland Branch Chair for the Writers' Guild of Great Britain. I assisted the previous Chair for around 3 years before taking up the role officially in 2016.

Dex Delphi, a private detective, his trusty batman and a brand new assistant combine their varied talents and, in the case of the assistant, complete lack of experience, to solve a gold bullion robbery that has Scotland Yard well and truly baffled.

Writing for CBBC's OOglies

I was part of the writing team for the latest series of this extremely popular animation show for CBBC. A team of very talented creatives, led by Cameron Fraser and Neil Jack at Ko Lik Films (Edinburgh) was rewarded with a 2015 Children's BAFTA for Short Form.

An Island Between Heaven And Earth

My historical drama about the origins of the Iona Community had a full 3-week run at the 2014 Just Festival in Edinburgh. We played to enthusiastic and full audiences and received excellent feedback from a large number of those who came to see it.

Comedy Sketch Series

I’ve recently written comedy sketches for an upcoming web series, directed by Weiwei Si.

Happy New Year

My hit BBC Radio comedy is coming to the stage.

Our latest performance of this play was extremely well received.
