Writer Statement


My focus remains on completing my three-part feature ‘The Hartfield Trilogy’. A dramatic series set at Hartfield House, spanning one hundred years of history. It follows the separate lives of three diverse women, each burdened with the responsibilities of their era. Starting in 1899, when Hartfield is a private home, to 1944 when it is requisitioned as a Special Operations Executive Training School, to 1999 as a private educational establishment, Hartfield School.

I am also working on the pilot episode of ‘The Inspector’s Daughter’, a TV series with a lesbian protagonist, looking at a young woman’s role in the police force in the early 20th century.

‘A Silent Scream’ a non-dialogue short, focused on two middle-aged mothers, both happily married but closeted bisexuals was a Semi-Finalist in the SWN Screenplay Competition 2020.
