My first script was written in a special, eight person hand picked screenwriting class at my University, selected from the top students in playwriting classes.
I worked with Scorpio Pictures for two years in the late 90s as part of a "stable of writers". Due to personal issues, at the time I had to concentrate more on my day job. I adapted the paranormal romance novel, "Dark of kNight" for Author TL Mitchell at her request. This did well at WILDSound and is currently being shown around.
My 500 page anthology of short Horror and Science Fiction stories is with editors at Knight Publishing.
I am in the editing stage of a massive Horror SciFi novel.
In 2010 I was published in two books in 2010: "The Undead Nation Anthology" ("Gumdrop City") and, "Rhonny Reaper's Creature Features" ("The Conqueror Worm"), both currently on Amazon and elsewhere; also in "Haunts Horror Quarterly" magazine ("In Memory, Yet Crystal Clear").
I have been published in various Computer periodicals. Amazon.com has an Author Central page for me.
For years I was a Sr. Technical Writer for years and produced computer manuals and technical documentation for companies including Proprietary and Confidential documents for US West Technologies while working on a high level development team.
Actor Rutger Hauer personally chose my short story, "Poor Lord Ritchie" (now formatted for my "HearthTales" screenplay) for his international writer of the week contest.
I am in the process of leaving the Information Technologies field to be a full time writer and I am quite motivated to see this happen. I have no doubt this will happen and I have made good progress in making connections and getting good feedback.
