A Writers Fantasy

Author, Screenwriter and Poet

Screenwriting

My interest in Screenwriting started in 2007 after I realized the book publishing industry had changed drastically. I knew nothing about screenwriting, except the fact that in order to make a movie you had to write a screenplay. I went to the library and the book store, reading anything I could on Screenwriting. Since then, my love for Screenwriting has grew into a serious passion.

I've written scripts, shorts, and currently working on independent film projects and have placed in contests. Received my Masters Degree in Creative Writing with an emphasis in Screenwriting February 2015.
