I'm not only a budding writer and film producer, but I am also a bit of a cosplayer. For those of you who've not heard of this word, it means I go to conventions and dress up as characters from films and TV shows. Yep I'm a geek. :D
Over the first weekend of April 2016, I attended Crown Con - a Game of Thrones Convention with my sister who is costume adviser on Letters Home.
We met several of the cast from The Game of Thrones, and had one of the best weekends ever.
At Crown Con, my sister - Denise Heywood - and I were asked to do a talk about writing and costumes, so I took a couple of clips from Letters Home as well as a clip of some behind the scenes footage. I also showed how the initial script developed from a stage play into a screenplay.
Michael Stuart, one of the actors from Letters Home has mentioned my film in his blog. I'm so chuffed.

Thank you Michael. :D
