Stephen Potts

I began by writing fiction for older children, with a total of seven books published. I then moved into drama, writing short pieces for the stage in Edinburgh and London, for BBC radio, and now for film and TV, specialising in historically set adaptations. I've had one feature produced ( a Philip Pullman adaptation) and four scripts optioned. I've won six screenwriting awards, at festivals in Monaco, Amsterdam, NewYork and Toronto.
I live in the Scottish Borders, and work as a psychiatrist attached to the transplant unit in Edinburgh. I have done a lot of medical writing, in the form of textbooks and research papers.
