Marie Davies – television producer – writer – underwater photographer

My love for storytelling began in earnest after discovering Enid Blyton at 12 years old. Soon after I wrote my first novel about a girl at a boarding school, who had lots of adventures.

But it wasn’t until I studied English and drama at university that I really gorged on books and plays. When the BBC offered me a production job, I turned my love for the written word into pictures. After twenty years producing and writing for television, I now combine both my passions.

By day I’m a series producer for ABC TV – currently working on ABC’s Book Club. Previously I was series producer for ABC3, the children’s channel. By night I’m an emerging writer – working on a YA sci-fi novel set 500 years after a meteor slams into earth.
