Texas-raised, Chicago-bred, Upstate NY-residing screenwriter across a broad range of genres - horror, family, comedy, action, thriller.
I've had several options, have a few produced scripts, and a couple currently in development.
I'm also an experienced ghostwriter and current novelist (including the novelization of one of my produced scripts).
Unique traits: I am burdened with a weakness for a corny pun.
Red Dirt Blues Action ⋄ Comedy When a stone-cold, world-wise assassin is sent to a small Texas town to retrieve a diamond, she goes undercover with a white trash family to hide from the pursuing FBI agent and revenge-seeking Chinese Mafia.
Trap Door Thriller When Bobby, a trusting, small town mechanic, befriends the seductive, manipulative Renee, he helps her escape from her psychotic boyfriend and soon finds himself embroiled in a tangled web of deceit, robbery and murder.

Jill and the Giant Comedy ⋄ Family ⋄ Fantasy When Jack (of beanstalk fame) is kidnapped by a vengeful giant, his younger sister Jill takes it upon herself to rescue him, and embarks on an adventure where she learns there are at least two sides to every story.
