About Mark

I consider myself a screenplay writer above all other titles.

I have over a dozen screenplays with more coming in the near future. I think I'm a better drama writer over any other genre but have great stories in other genres that have multiple genres incorporated into the work. Even Action and comedy need a bit of drama as a subplot as much as true dramas need some comedic elements to make the story great.

I have worked with some 'A' list directors and screenplay contest judges to make all of my scripts market ready.

As for building my celebrity- I'm working out in the gym heavily with my hopes of doing a Sylvester Stallone attempt at having one of the lead roles in my action stories.

If you are and industry professional then you should take an hour or so to read one of my screenplays . I believe it will shock you but let's see what you think.

  • Fornicating INSANITY

    Fornicating INSANITY Budget: $100K - $1M | Thriller Dating in the 21st century is no joking matter when meeting some of the biggest sociopaths in the world. Disguised by an exaggerated existence, potential lovers can easily offer you anything and everything to win you over.

They were all empty promises at best and would never happen since every word spoken was a bold face lie!

  • Bewitching INSANITY

    Bewitching INSANITY Budget: $100K - $1M | Thriller 'Poison Ivy' is tame compared to what this poor chap encounters. This unsuspecting older man thought the playful banter and friendship with his seductive, yet bizarre, teenage neighbor was harmless until his life was flipped upside down with no chance of repair. This psychological thriller will baffle you beyond belief but the story is actually all true.

  • Right Here... Right Now

    Right Here... Right Now Budget: $100K - $1M | Thriller Kindred to any S.E. Hinton novel. Set in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, this 80s period piece will bring back memories of a forgotten era of rock t-shirts, ripped up denim jeans and muscle cars. This road racing reckless juvenile delinquent, without any parental control, finds himself to be 'Smallville's Most Wanted' for good reasons gone terribly bad!
