About Mays

Despite a successful career journey spanning clinical dentistry, human resources, executive leadership, and training, my true passion has always been storytelling.

Though I led an extremely busy life, I managed to craft seven feature screenplays, two pilots and two novels across an array of genres: sci-fi, thriller, mystery, action, fantasy, history, and drama.

I enjoy writing mind-bending narratives, complex what-if scenarios and meaningful thematic inquiries that challenge conventions in a subtle way. My storytelling revolves around large existential themes such as fate, free will, equality, and the human condition. Through science fiction and fantasy, I challenge norms and provoke introspection, aiming to ignite profound conversations and inspire transformative change. I have also identified a pattern in my writing; oneness, the desire to show people that humankind is not always tribal and segregated, but can be loving and united, and the reward of such unity and oneness can greatly improve the human experience.

Drawing from my experience in strategic management, I possess a keen eye for assessing commercial viability, crafting effective marketing strategies, and targeting specific audience demographics. Even my most ambitious script is written to be produced at reasonable budgets. Novels are a different story.

Beyond a career, storytelling is my cherished vocation—a vehicle for expressing my voice, empowering others to discover their purpose and navigate their lives with a deeper understanding. With a commitment to authenticity and a burning itch for pushing boundaries, I aim to craft narratives that captivate, provoke, and ultimately, illuminate the human experience. In this lifetime, I hope I can be successful in achieving that goal.


Unique traits: I also enjoy creating smiles and fixing teeth :)
