I am 34 years old and live in Exeter, Devon UK. My first experience of writing a play was in my final year of University in 2008. I initially produced a play at university and then, following my graduation I returned to Devon and continued to write. I have written and sold plays to multiple companies across Devon. Most recently I have completed two writing challenges in February and April 2021 where I wrote a play a day! Since then I have sold multiple scripts to societies based around the UK. I have script on the Smith Scripts website and have also donated my scripts to charitable organisations for their performances.
