John Sealey
JOHN SEALEY has spent his entire working life in the film and television industry, beginning his career in the cutting rooms, becoming a film editor, working on many international feature films, as well as major filmed television series. John then decided to widen his scope, and moved into production becoming an assistant director, then moving into production management becoming a production manager, production supervisor, associate producer, and finally Producer/Director working with many of the major US and British studios. John is a Freeman of The City Of London. John has also written and directed many commercials, documentaries and feature films. John now concentrates his creative mind on writing, starting with the adaptation of bestselling author Anne Perry's quintet of books, ‘No Graves As Yet' ‘Angels In The Gloom' ‘At Some Disputed Barricade' ‘Shoulder The Sky' ‘We Shall Not Sleep' a murder mystery thriller, spanning the First World War into an epic television series. Anne Perry considers it to be the best adaptation of any of her books. John then went onto write:- IF A WICKED MAN: The biography of John Lawson, one-time violent criminal who thought the world owed him a living and everything was there for the taking. His life of crime had no boundaries, until one day in his last, long prison stretch, he found God. The film rights have been acquired by a major international film company.

CATESBY'S HOLY WAR: A historical drama with co-writer Ric Gannon, the true account of Robert Catesby, the Bin Laden of his time and the parallels with 9/11. Screenplay available. A RAINY DAY ON WALL STREET: An erotic tale of romance, sexuality, materialism, self-liberation, that explores the lives of two richly-layered characters from opposite ends of the political spectrum. Now published in America. Screenplay available. THE REDUNDANT FUGITIVE: A story surrounding the unusual circumstances that ruin a man's life. Amit an Asian, living in England, a skilled marine engineer, is made redundant and as a result is innocently drawn into the sordid world of drugs, protection rackets, loan sharks, prostitution and sex trafficking. As his world begins to collapse, he decides to fight back and eventually has to go on the run. Screenplay available THE MAGIC WISHBONE: A children's fairy tale story HITLER'S CUCKOOS, a compelling, at times harrowing story based on a situation which really happened early in World War Two, during the conquest and occupation of Norway which covers an aspect of it of which many of us were not aware. This moving story more than most, shows in sharp detail the inescapable horror of the betrayal and occupation of a once friendly nation. This story will deepen our understanding of what it costs and how precious peace can be and why sometimes we have to fight for it. Adapted from my novel “The Betrayal of Norway” Screenplay available. Two major companies have asked to read the screenplay as well as one of our top international award winning directors. REVENGE IS NOT A GAME: set in Mumbai, India, a murder mystery thriller that explores the heartaches, joys, sorrows, successes, failures, passions, intrigues, and the intricately crooked dealings of the financial world surrounding the game of cricket.

Latest Poem

Don't I feel like a loser when I learn you're through with me.
It was news to everyone, especially to me.
Don't I feel pathetic, like there's something wrong with me.
She is far more beautiful than I could ever be.
I stand here null and solemn, though it must be written on my face,
that I've found before the world what you couldn't say to my face.
You blow right on by me with your new love, hand in hand.
So smug, haughty, and thoughtless.  You are not much of a man.
Filled with anger, through and through, I feel like I could drown.
I lift my glass and drink fast to chase the feeling down.
I close my eyes.  I still see your face.  Somehow I should have known.
You kill me inside with a passing glance, and now my heart grows cold.
So much time spent in a one sided love was wasted all on you.
Don't I feel like a loser for ever caring about you.

By Anne Rasico (Joyce)
