Writer-ography

WRITER-OGRAPHY

 

 

Since 1973 I have been a professional writer and have been paid for original scripts, rewrites of others’ scripts, adaptations, polishing, and editing.

 

Besides the writer-for-hire projects a number of my own works have been optioned, with interest from major companies for some of them, including MGM and Eclectic Pictures.

 

Produced projects include short films [including an award-winning comedy short], many documentaries, science, industry, and military programs.
