The first book I wrote was in the second grade and it was about an 8 foot tall Martian who gets a wish from a genie. Seriously. I have to admit it hasn't always been going uphill since then.

About 20 years ago I started writing earnestly and the first book I wrote was a Doctor Who novel. I even got it to the point where I professionally submitted it to the Dr. Who novel range at the BBC but it was just a bit late. They had decided to close the range when the new series was announced so I'll never know if it would have been accepted. In the meant time I've written a sci-fi time travel novel, no coincidence, called Time Web Tremors that I self published. I've also written a four book YA sword and sorcery series beginning with The Secrets of Starpoint Mountain, also self published and have a sci-fi horror book called  still on my shelf.

Several years ago I began writing and producing short films at a local public access station in Iowa City, Iowa and these are available on Vimeo. Death's Game, The Burning Room and It's Not Easy Being a Zombie have all been shown in festivals across the United States plus, England, Brazil, Indonesia and Canada. After doing more than two dozen short films and documentaries I started to expand my script writing goals and have moved in to bigger projects.

The Pack is a horror film that was called a cross between The Breakfast Club and The Lost Boys as a majority of the characters are young college aged students and dealing with a pack of vampires coming into a college town. These characters are all about to face not just outer demons but their darkest secrets. Not everyone survives and everyone changes. These are also not your father's vampires. These are not sparkly vampires in love. These are animals, brutal, and, most importantly, hungry.  Don't let them see you.

Welcome to Nowhere takes place on a space station less then a century in the future. Mankind is reaching out, exploring the galaxy, but still isn't prepared for what happens when they come back. It's not what's in the darkness that you should be afraid of.

In the Shadows of November has been my primary work for along time. As a series this will look at things a bit differently and the pilot script has been selected to seven festivals, awarded in three, and took the gold in the 2018 Hollywood Screenplay Contest. I have been pitching it through Stage 32 and have had interesting feedback, but no takers. I want you to know I'm not just selling an idea here. I have a synopsis for the episodes in the series already written. A producer will know on day one what they will need to get to the final shot. How many writers will give you an offer like that?

On November 9th nuclear bombs went off across the United States. Not long after, a young woman searches for clues to who was responsible and finds some very disturbing answers.
