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 hitching a lift with a 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.

Also, 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. Until then, I'll mix and match, etc. - writing what I know about.

My five shorts are available for free. If you seek to use any of them, please ask me first. They might be free, but I still own their copyright.

Finally, if you download a screenplay and after reading it, decide you like it, please press the like option, the heart icon, under the scripts entry. All likes count!

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

J
