I wanted to re-post Stephen’s letter because I know Stephen… and consider him a friend. He and I have worked on projects in the past and I have always found him to be very smart and wise in industry-related issues. I believe his letter to be a sincere and thoughtful response to what the Academy is doing in response to being in the spotlight on an issue I believe is not just an AA problem, but actually an entertainment industry wide problem. pitandpen.com

I'm a member of the Horror Writers Association, and this year I was a jury member for the Bram Stoker Awards in the non-fiction category.
I loved the whole process and got to be part of a really smart panel of jurors ( I have to mention one, Leslie S. Klinger, he was amazing. Be lucky if you have him as the editor of your book!).
And there were some amazing books that qualified this year that were very impressive.
As soon as I can, I will list a few that I thought were particularly well written.
The only disappointment was how many books actually ended up qualifying —
Just 11 books!
I guess what I'm saying is that if you were interested in snagging a Bram Stoker Award, perhaps think about writing a non-fiction book. The competition will probably be tough, like any of the other categories, but maybe not as many competitors...

Introduction

I've been a professional writer since 1994. 

Drawing on my experience as a screenwriter and producer I am the author of the PS series of e-books for those who want to know more about professional screenwriting. All of the books I've written thus far have wound up on the amazon.com best-selling list! The first e-book in the series was -- 20 Rules for Professional Screenwriters followed by 19 Techniques for Professional Screenwriters and 16 Secrets from Professional Screenwriters..2015 will see the publication of 25 Steps to Writing a Professional Screenplay. 

As a novelist I wrote the first of four DEMON DAYS books in 2009. The book series has become an amazon.com bestseller! I also created the RELICT vampire series, the SF/ thriller book series BLACKMARIAH, and the Illustrated SF/post apocalyptic book series The WIND RAIDER 

I continue to work as a professional screenwriter and producer of movies and TV shows.

I live in Southern California because this is where my dogs have decided they want to live.
