About Tanisha

Ms. Williams began her entertainment career in 1998 working in the trenches of some of the most prestigious Hollywood entertainment companies--as an assistant and coordinator at the William Morris Agency; Don Cornelius Productions; RKO Pictures; New Line Cinema and ICM, she obtained an insider look at the Hollywood “Boy’s Club.”

In 1999, Ms. Williams was chosen as a fellow in the Guy Hanks & Marvin Miller Screenwriting Program at USC, for her comedy screenplay, “Personal Problem,” about a man that looks for a date through the personal ads. She went on to produce her own short film, “Artificial Genes,” a romantic comedy about a woman who used artificial insemination to start a family of her own. Her drama script “Sweethome,” about a young girl desperate to find a place of her own, placed in the FADE IN magazine screenwriter competition.

Pushing diligently to get her screenplays seen and never wanting to be limited, Williams, went back to school and completed her degree in Broadcast Journalism from California State University- Los Angeles. During this time, Williams continued to climb the ladder and landed opportunities writing for several entertainment television shows and magazines and soon garnered staff positions at Inside Edition, E! Entertainment, US Weekly, BRE Magazine, EURWEB.com. As a senior entertainment reporter she interviewed celebrities, such as, Oprah Winfrey, Catherine Zeta Jones and Kelsey Grammar. Snagged the biggest cover for US Weekly Magazine in 2010 by bringing the Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin engaged cover story. She has covered numerous red carpets for the Grammys, Oscars, Emmys and more, but her passion for screenwriting never waned.

In 2013 Williams resigned from her job and decided to reconnect with her passion. She obtained a MFA in Creative Writing from University Of California -Palm
