I'm a USA Today bestselling author. Though I'm new to script WRITING, I'm no stranger to scripts and I'm very aware it's totally different from writing novels. Short, sweet and tight...check! I know my way around character development, story development and write some pretty wicked twists, so I'm enthusiastic I have a lot to offer...but I'm certainly open to learning!
I have experience in front of and behind the camera, having been an actress (film, tv and stage - I suck at improv, though) and grew up on movie sets (my dad was an actor). I have limited experience in digital film editing and audio editing. I've done voiceovers, audiobook narration and set building...so I'm pretty familiar with the whole production process from start to finish. But my first love is WRITING.
As a side note, I've worked for 20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures Entertainment on the corporate sides as the IT Training Manager, so I have a TON of experience being in front of crowds for presentations, training and I still conduct webinars and tutorial videos (which I edit myself) for authors. You can check out my author site at http://authorbank.net. I'm always available for questions!
