I developed a love for writing from a young age, inspired by favourite books like The Hobbit and the Dark is Rising series. I wrote copious amounts, even if much of it didn't make sense. I still remember the fear behind the smile on my teacher's face when, at age 10, I proudly presented a 12-page rambling story about a monster. I now know that quality, not quantity, is the way forward.
As a child, I looked forward to the weekends when I could watch black and white film offerings on television like 'The Kid', 'The Proud Valley' and Laurel and Hardy shorts. Films with dance numbers were always a favourite - I remember seeing Whitey's Lindy Hoppers and thinking how amazing they were. Later, films like Jaws, ET, Poltergeist, and Close Encounters captured my imagination. These experiences fuelled my love of writing for the screen - and writing in general.
I write because I enjoy the creative process - and the places my imagination takes me to; anything else that follows, be this placing in a competition or seeing a short screenplay come to life on the screen, is a bonus.
A proud mam, I am an avid Lindy Hopper and authentic jazz dancer and facilitate classes with the Steel Town Hoppers in a church hall. We have entertained residents in care homes and can be seen dancing at vintage events.
I work as a teaching assistant in further education.
