    Hi from Cambridge!

    Great to be here and I am looking forward to getting involved and learning from you guys.

    I am a fiction writer and recently started focusing on converting one of my published short stories into a movie screenplay. I'm also a lecturer on digital marketing so thought I would combine my interests so started a project called Monumental Words.

    Basically, I'm running through the process of converting an idea for a movie, into a professional script and use Video logs and blogs to demonstrate the theory and process.

    So, I'm here mainly for writing for the big screen but as I have had small success as a fiction writer, I hope to be able to contribute to those discussions too.
