THE MAGIC WISHBONE: A children’s fairy tale story
HITLER’S CUCKOOS A compelling, at times harrowing story based on a situation which really happened early in World War Two, during the conquest and occupation of Norway which covers an aspect of it of which many of us were not aware.

This story will deepen our understanding of what it costs and how precious peace can be and why sometimes we have to fight for it. Adapted from my novel “The Betrayal of Norway” Screenplay available. Two major companies have asked to read the screenplay as well as one of our top international award winning directors.
