About Marven

By day I am a photo copier technician. By night I am a writer, actor and sign language advocate/consultant any chance I get.

Actor, Writer, Sign Language Advocate/Consultant

After an incident that cost me most of my hearing in 2016, I have reactivated my creative side. Being a part time actor, I channeled my thoughts into script form to deal with my new reality. Although I am always working on a multitude of projects, I keep coming back to a series I created called One in a Trillion. With it's first release to the public in 2020 it has been amazing to see and hear the feed back I get.

I write mostly drama usually dealing with coming of age stories incorporating love and the mistakes of missed opportunities.
An idea will pop in my head, and I will dwell on it sometimes for weeks before I even type a word. The good ideas stick with me. Once the story is flushed out in my mind I will wake up in the morning and not be able to return until the muddled visions in my head are registered on a page.

I also enjoy writing for others. Whether it is just an idea they have and want to flush it out or something they have written a book that they want turned into a script. I work for LS Book Services that allows me to do that for others.
I am as passionate for others creating their dream as I am on my own spec writing. This not only creates an income but also furthers my talents in the craft of script writing. No matter how much I know I always find new ways to learn.

I am still teaching myself how to create promotional material such as one/two-page flyers, poster work and pitch bibles. Creation of this material has come along way for me, but I am still not a master of it…yet.

Thank you for your time.
Marven Likness
