About Zack

I have eight completed feature-length screenplays in a variety of genres (drama, dark comedy, crime caper, science-fiction, horror). I have also published a novel entitled "Island of the Lost Souls" and a collection of short stories. My second novel, "Porndance," is finished and I'm currently shopping it to prospective publishers.
