NIALL LEONARD

During his 30 years in the business, Niall has had a hand in British TV classics, such as Monarch of the Glen, Wire in the Blood, Wild at Heart and Hornblower. More recently he wrote the Crusher trilogy of novels and the screenplays for the international blockbusters Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. He is currently working on the thriller novel Melville, based on the true story of the Irish bodyguard to Queen Victoria who helped to found MI5.

Niall has gained a reputation for being fast, funny, flexible and passionately committed to his material – or as some script editors might put it, an argumentative PITA. If you want an original, skewed and irreverent approach to your project, call Val and see if he’s available. If you want an easy life, she has lots of other good writers too…
