Warrior. Dr. Smelser holds a Ph.D. in rhetoric from Michigan State University, and has numerous writing credits to her name including Newsweek Magazine. She's written more than 15 screenplays, placed in the top 20 of several national writing competitions, and has done battle with trolls and other characters you might think are fictitious but come out when a writer begins producing her own work. She has a few battle scars, but has learned a hell of a lot about business and her writing gets better every day.
