When a young man, I worked for The Croydon Advertiser as a drama stringer and general reporter. I also published various articles and poems in the local press in South London.
Throughout my acting career, I have written plays and screenplays, on my own and with co-writers; I wrote the Central TV series Luna with Colin Bennett. This has attracted a small (but perfectly formed) cult following: (http://luna.randomstatic.net/)
During the eighties, I was represented by Linda Seifert.
In recent years, I have been writing with Gabrielle Drake, and we are close to completing a new stage play, This Old House. Gabrielle and I are represented by Richard Ireson at The Narrow Road Company (see front page) for our stage and screen writing.
In 2013 I completed my first full-length work of fiction - The Diary of an Unfortunate Man, under the pen name of Charles Wickens, and I am looking for somebody to represent me as a fiction writer (Richard deals with TV, film and theatre only).
I have also completed the first draft of my second book Inside Out, a book for older children and young adults.
