I am a retired professor. I was a successful teacher and award-winning playwright who, recently, at my advanced age (not telling!), turned to scriptwriting. I have achieved great success with my screenplays but lack the business knowledge to continue. I am also an immigrant (born and raised in Wales) coming to the US in my twenties. As such I brought my European attitude to history with me. Not sanitized but questioning. My most successful screenplay, ALTA CALIFORNIA, came from my asking myself to name some California Indian tribes. I failed miserably! So, what had happened? A young half-breed seeks his true identity, “heathen” or “civilized,” amidst the violence and brutality of the mission period. Just one of my screenplays. Action-drama, romantic comedy, comedy and, taking up my wife's challenge, a recently completed horror movie. Love writing. My Welsh ancestry makes me an inveterate story-teller. Stay healthy.
