The amazon bestselling "DEMON DAYS" Book Series was launched in 2009. Originally, the three sequels to "DEMON DAYS" were published as one book – “DEMON DAYS: Angel of Light," but have since been re-published as "DEMON DAYS - Book Two;" "DEMON DAYS - Book Three;" and "DEMON DAYS - Book Four."

I am also author of the PS Series of e-books on Professional Screenwriting.
All the books have become amazon.com bestselling books!

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

I've never had writer's block.
I always start with a Road Map.
A road map makes sure I stay on course.
Sure I might not visit every interesting or curious attraction along the way, but I always finish my journey.
I believe the best creative adventures are ones that come to the mind wild and crazy. But after deciding to make the trip, one is best served by working out a plan, not written in stone, but on paper.
I like my road maps to be detailed, but not too thick, so I can fold it up and stick it in the back of my jeans pocket. I want to be able to pull it out when I'm tempted to take a detour by an attractive road sign or by hearing good advice from a fellow traveler.
I have found a really good road map encourages you to take such detours.
When you're in the mood to try something daring, there's nothing better than the security of knowing how to get back on the road that leads to... the end.

Richard Finney added a status update: What is the one thing in Everyday Life often missing in badly written Screenplays?

I was reminded of this when I was going back and forth with a film director as we discussed collaborating on a project together.
