Hi, I’m Elvira Drake and I write fiction in the form of screenplays (shorts, features, and television specs), short stories, and novellas/novels. I have a B.A. in Film and Television Production with a minor in Philosophy from The University of Memphis.

I’m a fan of classic films, especially horror and thrillers. I write films that I want to see. Just to give you an idea of films I enjoy: Films by Roman Polanski and Alfred Hitchcock, Italian giallo films, Hammer Films movies, Don't Look Now, Carnival of Souls, Night Tide, Alice Sweet Alice, Lisa and the Devil, Diabolique, The Wicker Man, Repulsion, Rosemary's Baby, Crucible of Horror, 3 Women, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, etc.  

I also enjoy writing comedies.
