Reader & Writer


I was a drama teacher for ten years and now I'm a full time writer - YAY!I went to drama school (The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama) in London and then I did a little acting and a lot of teaching and directing, which I loved! But now I prefer to act out characters from behind my laptop! I write for The Stage newspaper and also create resources and plays for drama teachers. My non fiction book '100 Acting Exercises for 8 - 18 Year Olds' is being published by Bloomsbury and will be released worldwide in the spring of 2019.
