Hello everyone. You can call me Fran, Frannie, Francie, or Frances. I am a certified public school teacher here in upstate New York and I work part time as an Evening Administrator for our local community college. I am certified to teach secondary Social Studies and Mathematics, but I have always, ALWAYS wanted to be a screenwriter. I have been at it a very long time. I am a published writer already. I have been credited with several articles for our local magazines and newspapers that I am very proud of. One was from an interview I did with Nick Sagan, sci-fi novelist and screenwriter and the son of the late Carl Sagan. I have been busy with subbing, yes, but I have also been busy taking online classes from the UCLA extension to sharpen up my writing skills even further for the screen. I am currently working on my historical and mythological screenplays, but I am also very interested in writing comedy and for animation. I wrote a sitcom spec script for the Big Bang Theory for my sitcom classes and just entered a comedy script into the Stage 32 contest. Wish me luck. I am just putting together another spec script for Big Bang Theory and have been green lit for another article about a vintage candy store we have here in the Finger Lakes everyone is just "nuts" about. I am hoping I can hook up eventually with someone here with similar tastes in movies and TV and help me produce something. P.S. I also helped to finance, a little, an indie project this past year that Craig Campobasso has been working on and has been getting high praise for, Stranger at the Pentagon. I am excited about that as well. I am very glad to meet and be connected with you all.
Unique traits: Love to joke around, and be the class clown so to speak.
