About Johanna

Author & screenwriter. Have traveled throughout the US, Europe, Canada, So. America & some MidEast. Looking forward to Australia & Japan.
Studied Screenwriting @NYU in NYC and Industrial Design Masters Class w/Rowena Reed(Pratt Institute.) Plus writing workshops through Gotham & Kruger.
Coming out of a 3 yr writing hiatus.

Currently working on Children's Fiction for Picture Books & Middle Grade. Most are anthropomorphic & spontaneous. Latest fiction on 9/11, as seen through the eyes of a community of Snow Bengal Cats who live in a palatial dumpster behind a 4 star Italian restaurant in NYC...in final revision. Its comedic, jarring, sad, yet inspirational. It's material for animation. Book can also be used as a gentle educational tool for young children.

In the mist of ongoing revision for a Romantic Comedy/screenplay titled "Broken Links." In addition, initiating newest screenplay outline entitled, "He just Sat Down."

Love brain storming....its how I began "He Just Sat Down" (last month) with a chance meeting with a young millennial couple, while having a late lunch, in a new food take out on Wall St in NYC.

It was a very funny...a bizarre exchange, but most fruitful. They made me promise to turn it into story...they even helped w/plot points unsolicited...its been marinating.

Don't exactly know what I need as yet, but I would guess Technical & Methodical consult at some point.
Simply put, on a new path & looking forward to the joy of writing & speaking with those on a similar journey.
