About Richard

I'm an Independent Filmmaker who has produced twelve films starring such actors as Academy Award winning actress Melissa Leo, Katherine Heigl, Giovanni Ribissi, and Adam Goldberg.

I'm a screenwriter, a member of the Writers Guild of America (WGA), who has worked with such major studio talent as Steven Spielberg and George Clooney.

I'm an amazon.com bestselling author of the Professional Screenwriter series of books which include the recently released “16 Secrets Revealed by Professional Screenwriters," and the two earlier e-books -- "19 Techniques for Professional Screenwriters," and "20 Basic Rules for Professional Screenwriters."

I'm a novelist. The books I have authored include the amazon.com best-selling “DEMON DAYS” book series; the “RELECT” Vampire books; the SF/Thriller book series, “BLACK MARIAH;” and the SF/Fantasy epic book series, “THE WIND RAIDER."

My screenwriting career began when I set up a series of movie projects with Walt Disney, Warner Brothers, and Dreamworks SKG when Steven Spielberg bought my movie pitch for six figures. As a filmmaker I have worked at most of the major studios/production companies including Sony, Universal, ABC, Fox TV, 20th Century Fox, Lion’s Gate, CBS and the Lifetime network.

I reside in Southern California because this is where my three dogs have decided they want to live.

Unique traits: I can interpret people's dreams
