This is my first novel.

I trained at the London Drama Centre as a director before working in theatres and drama schools throughout the UK for more than forty years.

I was the Director of Newcastle-upon-Tyne’s Gulbenkian Studio; the founder and Artistic Director of the Northumberland Theatre Company; the Associate Director of York Theatre Royal; and the Artistic Director of the Cheltenham Everyman Theatre. As a freelance director I also worked in other numerous theatres, and  taught acting students at RADA; Central School of Speech and Drama; East15; Mountview Theatre School; Rose Bruford College; ALRA; and Cardiff’s Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where I was appointed Senior Lecturer in Acting.

A few fond memories of some shows and their shining stars:
