Long before I could print my name, I was "writing" dialogue. As a child, I did a lot of pretending and talking to myself, but this thrilling process of creating conversation involved editing — the alpha and omega literary love of my life.

The first screenplay I ever read was for the 70s film, "Billy Jack," because the paperback version was literally the movie script. As a 13-year-old kid, this alien style of writing spoke to me on somehow familiar terms, and I said to myself, "I could do that." I married young to escape an abusive household and turned to reading the classics while raising babies because college was out of the question. The thing I loved most about reading was the way I was able to "see the movie" — cast, set, and all — providing the most satisfying (and cheapest!) of escapes and adventures that, in a word, saved me.

Our own deepest truths reveal themselves in the stories we tell. My stories explore relationships I either never understood, or never experienced and wished I'd had. It doesn't get more personal than that, or more universal.

INFP/4w3, here to support and collaborate with like-minded people to create through film the LIGHT we want to see in the world.


GOLDEN (feature, inspired by true events) awards and accolades:

GOLDEN coverage excerpts:

"This is a very positive and heartwarming story that has the potential to appeal to a wide variety of people, regardless of their faith or beliefs. It's the tale of a man coming to terms with his life and the way he wants to live it. The author took a very interesting subject In Arthur Nash and made this a moving tale of his struggle that reads like more of a real life than an encyclopedia page. I think in the right hands that this could be a terrific film that affects people in a real emotional way." -AFF Reader

"This is a very well-drawn biopic... The script not only analyzes this man and his internal conflict, but that of the nation during the post-war Industrial Revolution. The script is very structurally sound and tight and the voice and dialogue pair perfectly with the time period without becoming tedious. Arthur's life is rife with intrigue and conflict, making for a great biopic subject... this script could garner attention for the writer." -Notes from The Blacklist

"This script is well written and has the potential to bring a strong inspirational story to light." -Notes from Finish Line Script Competition

GOLDEN, comments from screenwriter/friend, Dave:

"Just finished. 'Golden.' Never heard of this 'Golden Rule Nash' character. I had my doubts about liking the story but it was, it seemed, primarily about business but I was pleasantly surprised. You made what could have been an anal bore, alive, feisty, and sympathetic. I think this is a perfect time for a movie like this to get made and shown... I do think it offers up a great role for the actor who plays Nash and hopefully you are trying to get it out there so that actor can find it. Impressed with the writing, especially his speeches. I wish you continued success which means, never stop trying to get it sold."
