After I left the ministry of the Anglican Church I had to train for a new career. As I was married with a family it was not automatic that I would be ordained as a Catholic priest.
So being interested in film and literature I decided to train as a screenwriter. What I learned in those studies have enlightened every other aspect of my life.
One of the sharpest memories was in a session on how to create a believable villain. The teacher said, “If you want to create a believable villain you must understand why he believes what he is doing is good.”
