Simon has always been in or around drama. As a child actor, a short film he starred in, Fever, was banned by the BBC after terrifying children as part of a young filmmaker's competition. John Craven had to put on his serious voice to apologise. After university he worked as a freelance floor assistant for the BBC, getting people into position for Pebble Mill at One, working on drama Howard's Way, and looking after Yehudi Menuhin at the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh. He then enjoyed a career as a journalist. He was parliamentary reporter for weekly newspaper Hospital Doctor before becoming the publication's youngest ever Editor, then went on to publish a series of nursing magazines. Still a frustrated actor, he performed regularly in the Guildford/Woking area often in comedy roles. When the day job got in the way he started writing for theatre - beginning with a play about euthanasia written on his honeymoon, which grabbed the BBC's attention, leading to commissions from Radio 4. He won the TAPS Comedy Award at BAFTA for writers new to television. Since then, he has written the book element of musicals with various composers and developed screenplays (mainly comedy and mainly for television). His comedy series Barking was long-listed for the C21 Drama Series Script Competition in 2020. His latest stage production Claus the Musical ran at The Lowry in Salford from December 2022 to January 2023.
