As a writer and publisher of books, I know how to tell a great story. Recently I added screenwriting to my list, because it has been one of my biggest loves since my youth. Thanks to Masterclass and a course with Morgan Toll (coach Once and again, Orphan Black) I'n right on track again with writing for the movies. I have a few screenplays under my belt, motly shorts, and I will produce one called Destiny, which is slated for early next year.
