I am a professional screenwriter with six optioned/commissioned scripts in my portfolio, two of which are now in pre-production. I am also a bestselling non-fiction author with more than 60 books to my name, several of which have reached the top spot on Amazon by category.

The script for my animated adventure, The Battle of Boxhill, reached the quarterfinal of the 2016 Austin Film Festival screenwriting competition and was optioned by the producers of the Oscar-nominated movie Mongol (2008).

I’ve just adapted the award-winning historical novel Lost Paradise into a feature for First Cut Films. The script received great reviews from Peter Heslop (producer of The King's Speech) and Emmy-winning screenwriter Michael Hirst, and it reached the quarterfinal of the 2019 Austin Film Festival screenwriting competition.

I co-wrote I See Spiders with Emmy-nominated director Richard Bazley. This script is now in development.

And my script, The Little English Boy, is based on my novel of the same name, which has recently been preserved by the National Archives in the UK
