About me

TR Guest
Me, yesterday

Hello and thanks for visiting my site.

I live in south London, where I write screenplays, plays and fiction. I’ve also written a libretto for a leading opera company.

I’ve always been compelled to write, even when it’s got me in trouble (detention at school, fired from work, branded a ‘menace’ in the village). Slowly but surely I’m learning to use my powers for good and not evil.

I have a MA in Screenwriting from University of The Arts (London College of Communication) and I’m lucky enough to have had my work optioned, performed and published. I’m currently working on several projects with producers and directors, alongside other speculative work.

I love stories about outsiders, and I write comedy more than any other genre, but I’ve also written thrillers and horror. You can find out more about my work here.

I write as TR Guest as another writer has rather thoughtlessly (IMO) been given the same birth name as me. Flaming cheek.

I’m a long-standing member of the London Writers’ Circle and help organise its regular workshops, which have been invaluable for giving me feedback and keeping me sane, and I help run the London Writers’ Meetup with Katy Segrove.

I also work as a journalist and copywriter and have written for many publications, websites and brands.

Thanks to the very talented Julia Hawkins, who somehow managed to take a photo of me that doesn’t make me look a) mad b) drunk c) the secret lovechild of Barry Manilow (unlikely tbh).

If you’d like to get in touch to find out more about my work, collaborate or just to say hello, please do.
