Is your "HOT" wire coming from the light white? If power comes in at the light you reidentify the white (neutral) wire as your hot. You then bring power from the light to the switch using the white wire, the white goes on the switch on the common terminal (Black screw), you must reidentify the white wire with a peice of black tape at the switch and light. Then the red and black wires go to the other terminals, a common practice is red to right.
