Story
Tagline
Filmmaker... Writer... Novelist... Juggling it all!
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.

As a novelist I have authored the RELICT Vampire Series;  the DEMON DAYS  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.
