My Favorite Quote
Yoda, Star Wars: "Do or do not, there is no try"
I have studied courses and workshops in screenwriting in Edinburgh since 2009, but my first career has been dance. Initially Royal Academy of Dancing, Ballet, then moved on to contemporary, jazz, African and various dance forms. I have won awards in roles including performer, choreographer and director and gone on to serve as a judge. I have been writing on the side for a number of years, with a special interest in social issues. (Member of the Association for Freelance writers.) I aspire to combine my choreographic skills with screenwriting to create exciting film experiences.
My books include ‘Letters to Mandela’ which won International Independent Writing Awards in New York and LA and a creative narrative called ‘In the Wings – Trials and Transformation of the Alien Ballerina’. I have received poetry recognition from United Press London with work chosen for the Women Writers 2014 compilation and also Top Ten Writers 2015.
