I haven't posted her for ages. Partly due to ongoing server problems as my provider is closing down. So it's good to start back with a little success.
I'm really pleased that my latest screenplay "Gone to Ground" has made the top 32 long list of the prestigious Screenwriting Goldmine competition.
” 32 writers/scripts, who I think have a really balanced combination of story, character, energy, craft, spark and one or two really fresh ideas that could interest a good few of the judges."
"The competition consistently delivers professional standard winners and finalists who subsequently find agents and work" Steve Matthews – Executive Producer Drama Development at HBO Europe
Writing is a solitary pursuit, but for this script, so many others have helped me with this ..especially the awesome Karole Griffiths …and many of my writer friends from the London Screenwriters Festival Talent Campus have generously helped me with this, so it feels a collaborative effort.
It's a very personal story as one of the main characters is based on my father. I started to write it after he died.
Gone to Ground
When an old ex-RAF wartime pilot rescues an injured, abused Polish sex worker from a car accident, their cultures clash as he’s shocked by her feral in-your-face sexuality and she’s exasperated by his mannered irritating routines, but as she slowly recovers they learn to accept each other ..until her violent past returns to threaten both their lives.
