First, I hope everyone is sane, safe, and healthy. I've been a member of Stage 32 for a few years so I'm reintroducing myself.
I started screenwriting in 2009 after taking a screenwriting class at Emory University. I decided to "reverse engineer" one of my screenplays into a novel, which would eventually become my first published novel, "Murder at Venegoni's" while making my sophomoric authorial release in 2019 with "ASCLEPIUS." You can find both my novels on Amazon here https://www.amazon.com/Mr.-Christopher-M.-Rutledge/e/B01MU9V5JN.
In 2018 after sending tons of query letters and submitting screenplays to countless contests I decided to just S.M.O.S.!! I assembled the Avengers and became Director and Producer of one of my own screenplays. The short film titled "Trombone Jones" was completed late 2018 and has gone on to become an Official Selection in two film fests. You can learn more and see the trailer here http://www.trombonejonesfilm.com.
In recent news, my latest novel is now available as an audiobook here https://www.audible.com/pd/Asclepius-Audiobook/B08821NG8J.
OK. I'm done. Nice to meet you :)
