I’ve been writing for several years. I’ve completed a dozen feature length spec. screenplays one of which is with an agent in California. I have also had the chance to work for hire on several feature length screenplays. I’ve written and published five science fiction novels titled “The Encounter”, “Contact”, “The Submarine Effect” , “The Sentinel” and “The Key”. I teach Creative Writing and Screenwriting classes in Houston, TX for Leisure Learning. I donate my time to a non-profit organization called “Skills for Living” mentoring 15 and 16 year old high school students. I have also been given the opportunity to speak with children as young as 11 or 12 about the art of writing. If you need to contact me please use firstname.lastname@example.org
