I was an accountant for 40 years, but from an early age had a keen interest in home movies and a critical eye for film production techniques. I filmed and edited my first movie on 8mm celluloid back in 1971 and dabbled with a video camera in the 80s but didn't take up movie-making seriously until 2009 when I bought my first digital camcorder.

I produced a dozen or so travelogue-types movies featuring my and my wife's travels around the world but eventually tired of the reportage format and decided to do something more creative. A long-standing critic of grossly expensive and overblown blockbusters made with hundreds of production crew, I decided to produce my own feature film, single-handedly.

"Good Girl", which runs for 135 minutes, was shot in 2017 and premiered to cast, friends and family in April 2018. It was not made for commercial reasons and is available free to view on the Varium Films website and also on YouTube where, to date, it has clocked up over 250,000 hits.

In the aftermath of the movie project, my wife Nicky urged me to turn the Good Girl screenplay into a novel, which I self-published in February 2019. There then followed a sequel entitled "The Awakening" which I self-published in July of the same year. The combined saga has been turned into a 10-part TV drama script. If I had several million pounds to spare, I would produce it tomorrow.....

In between editing short films for aspiring film-makers I continue to write, publishing "The Angel of Solano" in July 2020 and "A Prayer for Mary" in April 2021.
