Marc Pye's headshot

I am the author of three novels, Lollipop, Rewire and Babushka. I also wrote the comedy stage play, Getting Ahead. I have a career spanning 20 years, mainly in film and television, and in that time have adapted four novels for the screen.

I am interested in teaching the visual aspect of storytelling and how short stories and the smallest of story ideas can be adapted for the stage and screen.
