ABOUT TOMMY SCOUSE..
Tommy Scouse is a fictional character, loosely based on a character in a play I wrote called ‘The Muddy Pool’, which was one of the winners of Windsor Marriott award for New Writing, judged by Fay Weldon and Nell Leyshon. I wanted to make him more realistic, and to pull no punches – therefore I’ve created Tommy Scouse, in the view to developing him further down the line.
Please feel free to comment about the story, the character, Liverpool, or even your memories of it if you were brought up in the area. I’m a big girl and will take the criticism on board! As long as it’s constructive! If you’re familiar with the Liverpool docks, or you lived around that area, I would be particularly interested in hearing about your thoughts and memories.

I have a Masters Degree in Scriptwriting, and I’ve had stage plays produced in London, Cambridge, Windsor, Swansea, and have recently had plays produced with the Lost Theatre Festival, London’s Off Cut Festival, and ADC Theatre‘s Write On Festival. After spending 13 years in the broadcasting industry, I took voluntary redundancy to pursue a PGCE teacher training course to become a Post Compulsory Education teacher. I have taught on the Film, Video and Scriptwriting modules at the Newport Film School, which is part of the University of Newport, as well as in local colleges and high schools, and I am currently a visiting lecturer in scriptwriting at the University of Bedfordshire in Luton. But I endeavour to continue writing and getting my own material produced along the way!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep reading! It keeps me writing!
