About Juno

Born Katherine Elizabeth (a.k.a. "Kat" or "Ezra"), I prefer to write as Juno. I am an asexual lesbian (and chronically insomniac) writer of short stories, novels and scripts (34% Italian; 65% other European rubbish) who spent five years studying filmmaking and screenwriting at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas under the mentorship of such personalities as David Schmoeller (Puppet Master) and Elvis Mitchell, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in July 2017. Although I've had my fair share of struggles battling obsessive compulsive disorder and clinical depression and was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome at fifteen, my ambition far outweighs the negatives.

While my scripts have not won the Academy Nicholl Fellowship (yet), I am driven to not give up.

Due to my life experiences and expansive family history of weird tales, substance abuse, military services and mental illness (ranging from the various cultures of Palermo, Sicily to France to Germany to Mount Morris and Buffalo, New York to New Orleans, Louisiana and Mississippi), not to mention I'm also an identical twin, I'm afraid to say this is mostly what my writing focuses on—if my anti-heroes aren't already struggling with their gender and sexual identities within often times ruthless societies.

Outside of film, I have had some experience in theatre in the past year. I've worked as an unpaid usher at the Las Vegas Little Theatre and interned as a spotlight operator and usher for Signature Productions at the Summerlin Library and Performing Arts Center (most recently, on Newsies).
