About the author

I’ve been writing most of my life, but I’ve managed to make a living out of it for the last twenty five years or so. But recently I returned to my first love, novels. My first one was ‘The Multiverse of Max Tovey’, a Young Adult fantasy novel about a troubled teenager who discovers that his recurring nightmares are a memory of a past that’s been changed. The latest one is ‘The Flying Monk’, a comedy fantasy novel set in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, a town so full of magic, myths and mayhem it has a 666 area code.

This doesn’t mean I’ve stopped script writing though, so do please get in touch if you want any written!

I started out wanting to write novels, but got distracted by the animation industry, and worked on many well-known shows, including ‘The Wombles’, ‘Sabrina, Secrets of a Teenage Witch’ and my own series, ‘The Baskervilles’, which has become a bit of a cult. I was the co-creator of Lego® Bionicle®, and even got nominated for a Bafta, for writing and co-producing the CBBC Christmas Special ‘The Tale of Jack Frost’. For more on my animation career, or even to hire me, head to the Scriptwriting Page.
