    Hi Cally,
    Have noticed many new dramas are written, produced and directed by females, for instance
    the latest Flesh and Blood. If, hopefully, your work is televised, would you be interested in producing or directing?

    1. C.L. Taylor says:

      Hello, Lee. Thanks for your comment. I have no experience in producing or directing so, no, I’d leave that to the experts! I would be interested in learning how to write screenplays/adaptations of my work however.
