Freelance Creative Writer, Screenwriter, Script Reader/Editor and Ghostwriter
I am a creative writer, screenwriter and script reader/editor with experience in several areas, including television drama, radio, stage, features and fiction. I have ghostwritten many e-books, particularly in the erotica genre, plus several movie scripts, print novels and TV pilots. Having signed NDAs, however, I am unfortunately unable to discuss any of my ghostwritten projects in more detail.
