About me

For several years I was a national newspaper film editor, reviewing all the major releases and interviewing stars and directors.

Now I’m a screenwriter for film and television, with over a dozen script sales/ commissions. I’ve written true stories, novel adaptations and comedies.

I wrote BORN A KING (2019), a $21 million historical drama based on true events set in Arabia and the UK in 1919. Directed by multiple Goya-winner Agustí Villaronga, it stars Ed Skrein, Hermione Corfield, Kenneth Cranham, Laurence Fox, James Fleet, Sam Adewunmi, Celyn Jones and Abdullah Ali.

It premiered at the Barcelona-Sant Jordi International Film Festival on April 27 2019 and released across the Gulf and Middle East on 26 September 2019, opening at number one and breaking box office records across the region. It won Best Film at the Inward Eye Film Festival, Lake District, November 2019 (patron Brian Cox). Produced by Andres Vicente Gomez and Stuart Sutherland.

Directed by Crispian Mills. Produced by Catalyst Global Media with Sony International and Stolen Picture. It released nationwide in the UK on October 31 2018 and in the United States on May 17 2019.
