writing

I'm an emerging script writer supported by 20 years as an award-winning actress on stage and screen, and many years as a copywriter. Having read and performed hundreds of scripts I have a well-honed sense of drama, stakes and pace. I'm a natural collaborator and thrive in a team. I'm interested in strong female characters and drawn to themes of ambition and being an outsider.

My current project is an action/drama feature called The Fantasy Ridge, about an estranged sister and brother who attempt to conquer the last unclimbed route up Everest -- the one that killed their father. The script has already had interest from producers.

My short script Black Lotus was a finalist in The Impact 50 project, and two of my other scripts have been shortlisted in competitions. Judgment Day, a one act play I wrote and performed, will be published in Dramatic Shorts: Volume 3.
