I joined Script Revolution in December 2020 with my first completed script, The Witter Merchants.  I wrote it in longhand after reading as much about the period as I could . That was so much fun that I followed up, at intervals, with five more scripts, thankfully, by then, done on computer. I'm not technically minded and struggle with posters, laurels and the odd baffling malfunction. I have my patient and long suffering husband to thank for undoing my many gaffes. 

When not writing my own fiction I've been re-watching Mad Men. Despite all the era authentic boozing, smoking and tomcattin', what a brilliant series. Back then, ads, typewritten and hand-drawn were more interesting, varied and catchy. Now, watching the show on Freevee, there seem to be only three ads that play the same clip ad nauseum. One for a pickup, one for allergy medicine and a preview of another of their shows.  

My latest endeavor, Womb Stone, is a stage play in four acts.This is my first attempt doing a play. So I apologize in advance, if the formatting is not quite regulation.
