Then there are those books that seem to drag on and on until you want to pull your hair out. The ones you force yourself to finish because you just have to.

Born in the Midwest, spent time out on the East Coast and in LA.

Learned the craft of screenwriting the hard way, as a barely paid reader. Got a good feel for the form and for storytelling. My approach to story is a lot like Bruce Lee's approach to fighting, absorb what is useful.

Published my first Paranormal Romance My Frankenstein on Kindle just recently. It's been an adventure writing and promo
