Profile Information

I have been writing, for pleasure, for many years. I think the earliest dates back to about  the mid sixties. I have tried short stories, novellas, and am currently writing a full length novel. As I worked in the film and television industry almost all my adult life, the novel is based in that industry.    It'll be a while before it's finished!

The other attempts are of no particular genre. There is a mild sci-fi short, two parts of a sci-fi trilogy, (never wrote the third part, see the notes with the story) a horror short, and a sort of transcendental introspective. (Sounds weird, put that way.)

But most of my writing has been either film scripts or TV episodes, never submitted so you won't have seen them. Unfortunately, I don't think they can be published on here, and if you are not used to reading scripts they can take a little getting used to. But if anyone wants to try one, I'll be happy to oblige.

However,  I wrote a short, comedy, "silent" film which is set out like a story, and that is included here too.

Can't think of anything else that would be of interest, except to say that now, as the years are passing all too quickly, it would be nice if some other people could read some of them and maybe pass a comment or two. But please bear in mind that most of these were written a long time ago, so any scientific or cultural facts may be well out-of-date!

I have now finished my novel, called Talisman of Power. It's an exciting fantasy adventure story, but not uploaded here as yet. If anyone is really interested and would like to have a look, please contact me direct at Dragonchief@zoho.eu which is my new email address.
