I'm a writer, book editor and filmmaker who loves helping tell great stories. Edited Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror; co-edited Now Write! Screenwriting and Now Write! Mysteries with my Aunt Sherry Ellis.

Write short stories, feature screenplays and educational videos. Three of my own scripts are in development with producers.

I was honored to serve as teleconference host for Intl. Screenwriters' Association for 3 years and happy to put on Now Write! panels and creative writing workshops for Greater Los Angeles Writers' Society and others.
