Author Bio:
A former language teacher (Russian, Spanish, French), Mr. Connell was also a professional drummer for major stars in jazz, shows, and theatrical productions. A life-long love of film sparked interest in story telling and screenwriting. Syd Fields, McKee, and Truby provided the basics; later, multiple courses with Hal Croasmun’s ScreenwritingU further honed his skills. Praise from directors Andy Fickman, Oscar-winning Michael Anderson, and Script consultant Linda Seger have -- so far -- kept him from booze, drugs, and potential, if not inevitable, self impalement.
