About Susan

A screenplay that I've written, TO BE FREE, has been optioned. That option ended October 2, and now I am submitting a wholly revised script to major production companies. This screenplay is inspired by the true accounts of educated mulatto slave, Harriet Jacobs, who struggles against a so-called master who wants her body and soul, until finally she hides in a crawl space, inside one of the walls of her grandmother's home; manages to survive there seven years while she devises ingenious ways to make her pursuer think that she's escaped to the North. An action/thriller, this film captures the great risks Harriet's aunt and grandmother take to get her free.

I have written another screenplay, FRANCOIS VILLON, THE PEOPLE'S POET, based on the life of the actual medieval French poet. This screenplay has already garnered a lot of interest by a leading independent French producer. I am writing another screenplay, a sci-fi about a space community in danger from a war-mongering earthling. I'm also writing a Memoir, because of various extraordinary events in my life, which includes extraordinary noted people that I've encountered.

I've written plays that have been produced In Los Angeles, New York City, and Stockholm, Sweden. One was published in a leading Russian entertainment periodical. I've founded and artistic directed at theaters in New York City and Stockholm.

Unique traits: I write historical screenplays, and sci-fi. I'm writing a Memoir because of the extraordinary events in my life, and the extraordinary, noted people that I've encountered.
