SEPTEMBER 2021: My novel CATHEDRAL is now available in bookshops in the UK and the USA and from online retailers internationally. See the "Books" page on this website for reviews and more details.

IN SEARCH OF MONSTERS, a feature documentary written and directed with John Goetz, for NDR/ARTE, is being broadcast this month and is available on the ARD Mediathek under the German title SLAHI UND SEINE FOLTERER.

I've been writing the script for FUZE - an action movie/thriller for director David Mackenzie and Sigma Films... The script is now ready to go out in search of cast and finance.

Work continues on pre-pre-production research for VATAN (FATHERLAND) - the real life story of Musa X; a biopic that takes in much of recent Turkish and German history. The screenplay is co-written with Atilla Oener. We are researching the possibilities for production, financing, casting etc.

INSIDE, a screenplay I wrote for Heretic Films in Greece and for director Vasilis Katsoupis - a kind of thriller set in a billionaire's penthouse - is in post-production.

I've completed a new novel in rough draft. The working title is GHOSTS.
