Hello, I am a retired lawyer with a lifelong love of the movies and TV. I love cooking, the outdoors, a good laugh, dogs and chocolate. I decided to embark on this new adventure and have taken two screenwriting classes and am enrolled for another six more. I have always wanted to write and returned to this upon my retirement.
I had a great career as a lawyer which I think gives me a unique perspective. I was a defense attorney and an elected District Attorney along the border. I also was Chief Legal Counsel at two large agencies in New Mexico. Since my retirement, I am going back and forth between New Mexico and Los Angeles (born and raised there). I look forward to meeting you on here and I can help you if you need it on legal process.
Currently, I have a young adult sci-fi novel (which is also a movie), a dark drama, and a sitcom I am writing currently in progress. However, I have so many ideas running through my head that eventually I think I am going to turn to my life of crime (ha-ha) and write about that too. I love humor as I am a comedian at heart. I look forward to collaboration and joining a team of writers.
FUN FACT: We had a guy being prosecuted for drug trafficking in my office in New Mexico by the name of Walt Heisenberg. This led me to binge watch Breaking Bad (great show!). I also took a deposition at the Santa Fe Law Firm from Better Call Saul (another great show!).
