Writer Biography - Ray Whittinger

YA Author, Multi-Awarded Screenwriter, Film and TV producer. Who has also dabbled in Directing.

Originally he was a part-time press officer writing newspaper copy. After writing, directing and performing three short plays on BBC Local Radio in the late 1990's he turned to writing mainly children's books. Several of these were published just before a collapse in the publishing industry.
Then he set up a production company in 2009 to convert two of his books into Children's TV pilots and another into a screenplay. Unable to get favourable offers due to market conditions, he now promotes his unique literary IP into fantasy films for family audiences. They are so original that nothing compares with them.

Writer Statement

Writing (Henri and the Alien - 2008) was great fun and so is the screenplay.

Writing is 99% effort few are chosen and can persevere. My motto is improve, improve, improve.
