John-Paul is a history graduate, whose degree focus on English witchcraft has left him ill-equipped for the 21st century office, general cursing aside. He started writing short plays and audio dramas during lockdown. His piece The Undertaking was one of the winners of 'Owdyado Theatre's "Twisted Tales in Lockdown" competition and his play Marvel Mabel's Final Act was selected for Muck + Rumble's Telling Tales project in aid of Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.
Of his monologue for TakeTen the judges said: “The story builds and builds, taking you to unexpected places. The character is extremely well drawn and the text naturalistic and well-paced.”
