Who am I? I’m the tall person standing next to you. Randy Newman wrote a great song about it called “Short People.” You can find it on his album “Little Criminals.” Seriously, people come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. It’s a beautiful thing. 

My love for science and music always informs and influences my writing. After completing a Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Texas at Austin in 1996, I worked as an Analytical Chemist in pharmaceutical and agricultural chemical companies. I have played piano since I was eight-years-old and more recently I have taken up guitar. I love to sing, but you may or may not want to listen. I believe music is a powerful positive force for uniting people in peace. 

I like using true crime stories for inspiration and seeing where my own imagination can take me.  I’m drawn to writing about the dark side of human nature. What makes criminals tick? What is driving their obsession or anger? On the screen, crime stories deliver big emotional payoffs when the monster is captured or slain. In real life, justice is often delayed or never realized. I’m also interested in strong female characters, family secrets, moral dilemmas, and forensic science. I’m excited about creating challenging and compelling roles for women in film. If you are a director or producer looking at my profile, I want you to take my crude painting and turn it into your masterpiece. My script is only the beginning. I’m here to help you achieve your vision on the screen.
