About Janet

I write because I like to tell stories, and for no other reason! Finished with my sixth. Yes, it's another CIA international espionage script. This one is set in England, Paris, Afghanistan, and Washington DC. The genre is the same, hey, at least I'm changing the locations! I've read a lot of scripts, and seen a lot of movies. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I am a Graduate of the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. I did some writing for the Daily Illini and have some experience in copy-writing when I worked for The American Medical Association. I went to Evanston Township High School. I worked at the Help Desk for The University of Chicago Medical Center for eight years. The last several years I've been working as a Technical Support Analyst for McGraw Hill. Some of the characters in my screenplays are based on these professions.
