A graduate with an MA in Screenwriting from Screen Academy Scotland, I'm a drama writer (oh how I wish I could write comedy!!).
My writing tends to explore themes of guilt and how to overcome it, fluctuating power dynamics and anger in the face of injustice. Having moved between Ghana, England and Scotland (identifying as a Ghanaian-Scot) my perspective on things is more unusual than the average. You have to have some kind of life experience and really understand human behaviour in order to be an effective writer. A psychology undergraduate degree doesn't just give you any of these things- but I got one just in case!
I write because that is how I make sense of the world and myself. Exploring characters through compelling stories is really mentally and emotionally gruelling, but it's always worth it to me.
