The Writer: Brodie Callender

I was born on the Big Island of Hawaii and am a seventh generation Hawaii resident. Although I have always considered Hawaii home, I spent many years and was educated in California. I've always loved telling stories and have been practicing the craft of writing screenplays for many years in between and around a successful real estate career. Getting better, bit by bit, at this craft has been incredibly rewarding. I love it but it's the hardest thing I have ever tried to master. My hat is off to all writers. Go to bio
