What a variety of work 2016 has brought.  From being in the feature film ‘Time for the Season’ directed by Jamie Benyon,  playing an unfaithful, desperate women with no children and only 2 months to live, due to a brain tumour to playing the Dame and villain in the Dick Whittington panto in a couple of weeks; touring South London venues.

Watch this space – last year I played the wonderful lead part of Leonora in a brand new musical The Mirror Never Lies.  Leonora is a selfish, beautiful, mature woman, who sadly finds she is beginning to lose her power over men, as the inevitable of getting older is starting… This show was still in progress and was performed in London last November. I have been involved in bringing it to the Cockpit this November and have my fingers crossed that I will be in it again.

I continue to write lyrics for songs in the Hound of the Baskervilles.  The wonderful Juan Iglesias is composing some fantastic music to make this into a dark exciting musical.   This will probably take a couple of years but what a great thing to work on.

2015 and 2016  have been extremely busy for me.  Photos above are me performing in my one woman show, just this weekend.  This is a tribute to all the female artists throughout the 20th and now 21st century.  I tour theatres, private venues, functions, parties and hotels. This has now developed into “Broadway meets Jazz”.  The titles describes the content!

In June Enter Stage Right produced ‘Witches and Bitches… and a Couple of Good Girls Too’. Touring a few local theatres in the South East. It is a witty, cynical comic musical revue, with loads of well known, and not so well known songs, and brand new sketches.  Sophisticated, and very attractive, three sophisticated ladies take to the stage and entertain the audience with their tongues in their cheeks, the occasional witch’s hat on their head and the odd feather bower!!  From rich bitches in sequin dresses to haggard witches in ragged stitches! This is a roller coaster of a show, highlighting the versatility of women in all moods of life and love.

My adaptation of Hound of the Baskervilles published by MXPublishing and produced by my professional theatre company Enter Stage Right,  can be purchased from http://www.mxpublishing.co.uk on Amazon, but you have to put my name in to find it!

In 2013 we produced it touring many well known theatres in the Home Counties, including the Mill at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud and the beautiful Hever Castle. I directed, produced it and acted in it.

I was extremely pleased and excited by the audiences’ reactions.  Brian Kirk from the Yvonne Arnaud said ‘The story was brilliantly told with not a spare word, very entertaining, and dramatised in a gripping way.’

At the moment, you can occasionally see me in a funny advert for Casino 777 and in an online advertisement for the Tutor Crowd. For the last few years I have been on the Bauer pharmaceuticals website.

I attended LAMDA on their three year acting course.

I have four children who are growing up very fast.

The last few years have been very exciting for me.  I appeared as the lead in Agnes of God.  Playing the Psychiatrist Dr Martha Livingston (Jane Fonda played her in the 80s film.)  This was hugely challenging as the character stays on throughout the whole play.  Not only is it a thought provoking play but also emotionally personal to most people, questioning the existence of God verses Science.  Fascinating not boring!

I have found myself doing corporate work for the first time and to my surprise find I enjoy it immensely.  I have regularly worked for Lloyds plc as a ‘trainee manager’ training their managers!  My job for Glaxo Smith Kline was extraordinary, as I had to play hostess to all the big supermarket buyers and pretend I was the owner of a 2 million pound house for days at a time.  The challenge was for them to mix with me and socialise and believe I was the owner till the end of the day, which they did.  So all day I was improvising.   I had to do a lot of research about the area where the house was so I could convince them I sent my children to school locally and I knew the shops etc.

At the moment you can see me on the Bayer Pharmaceuticals website acting in their contraceptive advertising.

Not long ago I played the lead singer/actress in Oh What A Lovely War performing all the main songs, at the beautiful Hever Castle, for Kent Repertory Company.

In the last couple of years I’ve collaborated on various drum ‘n’ bass tracks with producer Sust, one of the songs was recently featured on the BBC.  I’ve been highly delighted with the results and my own vocals. I have worked with a jazz pianist formulating a Julie London tribute evening.   Check the audio page of this site to have a listen.  You can also find samples on my SoundCloud

In 2014 I  became the face of Nuttybingo.com.  Not the classiest job I’ve ever done, but great fun.  You can still see me on their TV adverts.

I have appeared in various films and adverts, including being an Activia lady.

Feel free to explore the site as it is building all the time. There are videos, examples of my music, photographs, my CV, and there will be more entries and news to come in the near future.
