Narratological interest

I am particularly interested in screenwriting - theory and practice - and how
narrative plays a huge part in the study and practice of screenwriting.
Although I specialise in all areas of screenwriting, my main expertise (and where a lot of my publications lie) is in the notion of character journeys and how they can be mapped across screenplay narratives. I am also interested in the idea of narratives adapted from real life stories for the screen, and how audience expecation ('narrative pleasure') can impact upon the story being adapted.
