Films that Inspired Me

Countless, but e.g. 'Citizen Kane' (Welles), 'Miller's Crossing' (Coen Bros), 'El Verdugo' (Berlanga)

My Favorite Quote

"One day, back in 1896, I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry. And as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in. And on it there was a girl waiting to get off. A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second. She didn't see me at all. But I'll bet a month hasn't gone by since that I haven't thought of that girl." (Mr Bernstein, 'Citizen Kane')

About Me

Writer of short stories and screenplays, often with a dark touch.

I trained as a teacher (of English as a foreign language), a profession which I love. But I've always had writing simmering away on the back burner, and in the last few years I've switched it to the front of the stove, producing a couple of feature-length screenplays, a number of short scripts, and a lot of short stories. One of them ('Hands') made it into 'Twisted's Evil Little Sister', which I was very thrilled about.

I write whenever I can, from my sofa in Lisbon.
