I approached my first novel WHY THINGS BURN by writing the screenplay first. I found the format helpful and it served well as an outline. I entered my first screenplay into several key screenwriting competitions and was happily shocked to discover that it made the Finals at Sundance, London Independent Film Festival, Winner at Irish Film and AOF Festivals. Out of thousands of worldwide entries, WHY THINGS BURN came in the top 12 as a finalist. I went on to write ten additional screenplays and also found they did well in competitions: Second Round Winner at Austin, Winner at AOF and Zoetrope quarter-finalist and more.
I earned a Master's of Science Degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Industrial Psychology from California State University at Los Angeles. I am a current member of the Writer's Guild of America West. I live in Pasadena, California.
