In 2011 I was nominated by the Writers’ Guild for Best Children’s Television Script for Tracy Beaker Returns: What You Don’t Know. In 2012 Tracy Beaker Returns won the Royal Television Society award for Best Children’s Drama. And in 2016 I was awarded the Writers’ Guild Award for Best Children’s TV Episode for Eve: Final Episode – Control, Alter, Delete.
“I joined the EC and the TV Committee in order to help protect the interests of TV writers. The Guild has achieved great things for TV writers in the past, such as the Writers Digital Payment scheme, which remunerates writers when their work is viewed online. The TV world is changing fast and it’s important for writers to stand together to ensure that our contribution is fully recognised.”
