I’m a Drama teacher in Elephant and Castle.  I once travelled with Zippos Circus after training with their circus academy and was a professional actor for eight years.  I also acted at the Royal Opera House, notably in ‘The Fiery Angel’ where I got eaten by the Devil! 

In 2010, I appeared at the Young Vic in ‘The Human Comedy’ which was just as exciting (and a lot less painful!!)

I write fiction for under 18s.   I’m currently working on my third novel: “I KNOW WHERE YOU’RE GOING!”: Casey Warren goes back in time to 1915 and urges a young man NOT to go to war.  But when she realises the time-consequences of her actions, she has a rapid change of heart…

My second novel THE SCOOTER OF THE FUTURE (for age 10+) was shortlisted in the Nemesis Debut Novel Competition.   This is exciting and of course I want to go further! 

I’ve just competed a musical version of HAMLET which I’m very excited about.  Not sure what to call it yet:  I favoured ‘WILD AND WHIRLING WORDS’ but a colleague suggested ‘HAMLET ROCKS!’   Bet I can guess what you prefer!

I’m a regular contributor to ‘Teaching Drama’, a magazine for Drama teachers and practitioners.   I have reviewed books, joined in debates and argued that directing is a really good thing for drama teachers to do… which it is!

Here’s a link to my website which is still being developed.  Hope to meet ya!
