FILM & TV

I took a long time to get started as a screenwriter but support from the industry kept me plugging away until finally, signed with an agent, it became apparent that I was making the most headway in family entertainment. I won the Best Writer Award in the 2003 Children's BAFTAs for my work on Sir Gadabout.

My dedication to entertainment for families across all media remains - I've written 24 episodes of the popular animation show, Kazoops. And I'm currently working on series 3 of Clangers and an exciting international animation series bringing together the east and the west, Luo BaoBei.
