About James

Co-Founder Midwest Film Group (sadly now shuttered.) Love to write. Two full-length horror screenplays finished, outlined the third in the series. Drama feature based on an American folktale John Henry just completed. Working on our first Family feature. Sci-fi drama series heavily underway, completed episode 6, with 5 seasons outlined, and the pilot is being shopped by RAMO LAW PC. One short adaptation script written. One comedy short written (Alice Has It Under Control) which has been filmed and wrapping up post production. A supernatural drama series also in the works. Wrote several short stories years ago published in small-time mags. One novel that has been sitting on the "editing" shelf for... well... more than a decade. Working on a second as well. Working to adapt our sci-fi series into a graphic novel, as well as a novelization of the first episodes of the first season. And so much more.

Writing is like breathing; I cannot go without either. Ultimate goal is to get that elusive WGA card and write, write, write.
