COMICS

2000 AD AND OTHERS

Winner of Thought Bubble's 2000 AD Pitch Competition in 2019, Liam's written a number of strips for the world-famous series, including Cadet Dredd, Venus Bluegenes, Future Shocks and more.

Elsewhere, he's contributed to the record-breaking charity anthology Tales From The Quarantine and Storyworlds.

 

AND MORE...

Think of a job in Television Production and Liam’s likely to have done it. Starting out in Commercials and later Television Production, he worked in countless roles where he developed a keen knowledge, understanding and appreciation of everything that’s involved in getting an idea from page to the screen.

Later taking on the role of Emmerdale’s Researcher, he worked on a number of award-winning stories including Ashley's Dementia, Aaron's Historical Abuse and Holly's Heroin Overdose.

After successfully seeing Ashley’s two-year dementia arc to a close, he was promoted to Script Editor, where he worked with Writers, Directors, Producers, Cast and Crew to develop hundreds of scripts over a three-year period.

In March 2020 (which was arguably terrible timing on his part),  Liam took the leap of faith into the world of full-time writing. Thankfully the risk paid off and now Liam’s racked up 17 episodes and counting for Emmerdale, has written a number of acclaimed comic strips, and is now working on a number of development projects.

And there’s lots more to come…
