A writer by profession, I’ve worked in TV drama production and as scriptwriter on popular series such as Eastenders, Casualty, and Heartbeat. After an unintended career break to care for my mum, Glenys, who died in January 2020 after living with dementia for over twenty years, I have returned to the industry with original work for radio, stage, and screen, including The Things We Never Said – an award-winning play for BBC Radio 4 (starring Siân Phillips and Lia Williams) that explored the emotional and psychological impact of dementia on a mother/daughter relationship.

Since mum went into residential care in 2011, I have been active in the field of dementia and carer issues, contributing to campaigns, consultations, and research studies, writing and speaking widely on the subject, including a blog about my experiences. I’m on the Advisory Board of Raising Films, an organisation campaigning for parents and carers in the screen industries, and joined DCC’s Carers Advisory Panel to help others access vital information and support that was not available to me and my mum, struggling alone behind closed doors.
