The story of the Royal Oak sunk by a U-boat in Scapa Flow in 1939 and the mysterious watchmaker of Kirkwall, a spy, and his love interest and conflict.All I had was a paper copy, I thought it may be worth a rewrite/update; but first I queried some people about the idea and of course they all said send the mss. What mss? So I explained and sent very hurried sample chapters and waited. Some of the eight queried so far have said send the full mss. Now I am bust completing it.ScreenplaysDEAD EITHER WAYRomantic modern day thriller set in Florida, where a mysterious man arrives looking for a rich widow to hustle. Currently, August 2013, optioned $600,000 pay-or-play money set aside for the male lead. Director and producers attached. $1.5 million pledged by STARZ once cast is in place. Recently it was turned down by Richard Gere. Now promised finance by Patriot Pictures and just (Jan 2014) requested by Fox Searchlight.

Watched them ALL as a kid. Could always work out the plot. Drove my parents nuts.Ever since I heard the writer of Basic Instinct was paid $3 million I wanted to be a screenwriter. Jeffrey was horrified.I have been lucky in Hollywood, personal friends who I can, and do get on the phone are – Ron Meyer at Universal, Mike Medavoy, Sid Ganis, Jack Gilardi, Lenny Hirshan, Roger Birbaum (MGM) Mark Miner (Paramount), Tony Bill and others.I do miss my late, great friend Gareth Wigan, who I met a lot, and not enough. He was instrumental in getting my contacts above. His memorial is here above my desk.Ron Meyer is great with me; he always takes or returns my calls. He is probably the reason Mr Sutherland at CAA always reads my stuff and tries to get me literary agents there So far, it has been difficult, they only want to take on financed stuff.HobbiesThe gym, walking, chess, Sport, Played Cricket & Rugby for my school.
