Hello all

Thank you for visiting my profile.

I am a published author - one book having reached No. 7 in the WHSmith best selling list. Another, I am reliably told by a former guest of one of Her Majesty's establishments, was the most read book in HMP Ford. However, my literary agent does not represent screenwriters, so here I am, etc.

A couple of years ago, McCoy Films, a Hollywood production company, attempted to option The Cruciverbalist. Alas, I was given bad advice at my end and foolishly rejected their offer. Such is life. I am now in the process of turning the story into a novel.

The screenplay Skydiver was co written with a guy with whom I once worked. He is both ex UK special forces and MI6. It is he who (within the screenplay) explains the method of escape from hostile waters by Royal Navy submarine, as well as one way poison can be delivered during the course of a government endorsed assassination. I'm not revealing any state secrets; he openly discusses such matters - and more - in his autobiography.

Finally, if one went through the agony of reading all my screenplays, one might notice I frequently use the same names for characters, or use the same location, or describe the same action scenario, etc., eg, undercover police method or parachuting technique. Obviously, if a screenplay were optioned, similar references in other works would be deleted, or changed dramatically.

I wish you all well in your writing endeavours . . .

J
