Passionate about this precious gift that is my life, and all the drama therein! Angry about those who take choice out of the equation.

I'm a Scottish-based screenwriter who writes original, female-led, character-driven stories with punch!

I founded Shuga Koated in 2012 to focus on developing original, female-led content. I've produced award-winning short films across different genres, written & produced two theatrical plays, and am currently

developing several ambitious projects for TV and Film.

I'm also keen to collaborate with like-minded Creatives.

My recent TV pilot script S.O.L.O. is recommended by Peter Ansorge, NFTS (Ex CH4 Head of Drama) as being of 

"genuine excellence and originality" and, I've since been invited back to NFTS to discuss my work with students on their Edit for Today course, run by Peter.


MORE: I've received industry training, funding, and support from All3media, Screen Scotland, NFTS Scotland, BECTU, and WFTV, was awarded the SHED scholarship for my

MATV Fiction Writing at Glasgow Caledonian University

and selected for a place on the Talent Lab, EIFF.

Earlier script work secured me places on prestigious schemes Movie Makers, Opening Shot, and TAPS.

Shuga Koated is an independent Scottish-based production company with a focus on developing original female-led stories for TV and Film, inclusive of age and complexity.


We are passionate about creating content that will not only entertain, but challenge audience perception and influence social change, with female narratives that have a distinctive Shuga Koated twist! 

Our stories are inspired by truth and muddied by the lies affected against us as much as the lies we tell ourselves.


Stories with distinctive Scottish locations and a brave heart.

Stories that are original and compelling, bursting with commercial appeal across genres, and narratives that have deep resonance for the UK and global audiences.
