I am a toxicologist by trade and a writer in my spare time. I have written numerous short stories, some of which have won awards. I now spend most of my off time working on screenplays. I have completed five of them. I can't imagine what it would feel like to see one of my stories made into a film. I'm here looking for advice about the business and contacts.
