Carol Sheppard

About Me



Carol writes screenplays, stage plays, radio plays, children’s books and poetry.  A children’s play based on Hans Christian Andersen was produced in 2005 and she won the reader’s challenge in The New Writer Magazine in 2006. 

Her latest success was coming second place in the Script 1 screenwriting competition in conjunction with the International Screenwriters Festival in Cheltenham in 2008. “Receiving my prize from Mike Leigh was an honour”.   She currently has two film scripts under consideration with producers.

Carol also co-writes with another local writer and belongs to a group of writers who have written three radio plays which have been aired locally, one of which was converted to a stage play and came fourth in a play competition in association with Stroud Theatre Company.

Carol is a member of a local filmmaking group Clearwell Films, Gloucester Media Group, the Phoenix Theatre in Ross on Wye and the film makers network Shooting People.

Researching her family history has been another challenge.  She has managed to trace the Sheppards (who originated from Dorset and Hampshire) back to about 1850.  Tracing her German ancestors on her mother’s side has been much more difficult.

Despite Carol’s farm upbringing she prefers not to get up early and avoids milking whenever possible.
