Paralysed, Petrified, Pudsey (2014 Version)…

The one down side of being in New York for over a week is that I return to find that in two days, the 14th of November is Children In Need night. And anyone who knows me well will know my absolute, total and utter unconditional love for BBC’s Children In Need. Over the last few years I’ve raised thousands of pounds for it, donating my signed personal [&hellip

UPDATE: The Mild Bunch

So a while back, I spoke about how I’d started to write a screenplay called The Mild Bunch after a conversation with Frazer Hines. But when the producers we had on board took eighteen months and got nowhere, it was placed back in turnaround in May. That’s when a new producer, Damage Cat Productions came on board.

So in a couple of weeks I’m returning to Raindance to run my one day seminar on Writing for Graphic Novels and Screenplays, and part of my seminar is about networking, and more importantly what not to do.

Messenger: The Legend Continues…

So a few years ago, Sam Hart and I wrote a book for Walker Books called Outlaw: The Legend of Robin Hood, a retelling of the classic tale for a modern audience. A couple of years later we were asked to write another, this time about King Arthur, and Excalibur: The Legend of King Arthur came out. After that, we [&hellip

The Jigsaw Lady Comes…

As many of you know, for the last few years I’ve been doing a lot of work with reluctant readers in schools around the world, and it’s become quite a passion of mine. Which was why I was honoured and overjoyed  last year when Danny Pearson of Badger Learning, a division of the Haven Book Group asked me if I’d [&hellip
