I have written in various genres since my teen age years, notably scientific journals and business publications, as well as plays, opera librettos, song lyrics and short stories. In the past, I have sent ideas to various television shows in the form of synopses, treatments, and scripts, and had several considered. I hold a BA in English, a BA in music and a Masters in Botany.
I have completed eleven scripts. Seven are full length. One is a Supernatural/Thriller, another is a Sci-Fi Romantic Comedy. There is a Fantasy/Drama Teleplay and a Dramedy. Two scripts are Romantic Comedies. Of the shorts, two are Fantasy/Dramas, the other, a Sword and Sorcery/Fantasy. There is also a TV pilot.
