I wrote my first play aged twelve. It was called 'Blessed are the Cursed' and thankfully it has been lost in the mists of time (/my parents' increasingly squirrel-ruled attic).

Luckily that was the last that was ever seen of ominous-sounding pre-teen angst-fests and since then I have written thirteen much better plays, four comedy shows and an opera. 

I am an adaptable writer and thrive off new challenges and mixing up genres, in particular I think comedy and drama are the best of friends and can always work alongside each other.
