Author Bio: Danielle Erlich spent her life growing up with an auto-immune disease. This disease kept her from playing with her friends and partaking in fun activities. She ended up either reading or watching films most of the time to escape. She wrote all the time growing up and even had a poem published in the sixth grade. Soon after, signs of her illness began to surface. One of them was surprisingly writer’s block. After two years of college, and one screenwriting course, she switched to an acting conservatory in Santa Monica. She spent two years studying character breakdown and script analysis from an actor’s POV and graduated with a vocational degree in theatre. Sadly, a short time after, her disease became crippling, and she was no longer able to act. She decided to move back to Arizona while the doctor’s tried to figure out what was ailing her. This past year, she was finally diagnosed with this rare disease, and the moment that treatment began, her writer’s block broke. She is currently working on her third screenplay. Her very first “Legacy” has won twelve awards so far, which includes one of the top fifty festivals in the world. “Legacy” also nabbed eleven other nominations, including being a finalist at the South Carolina Underground Film Festival and The Beverly Hills Film Festival. Its prequel “Luana” seems to be following in its footsteps winning third place in The Depth of Field International Film Festival and becoming a semi-finalist in The Richmond International Film Festival, and a quarterfinalist at Storypros, along with “Legacy.” Storypros is the very first festival for “Luana.” “Legacy” is also currently a quarterfinalist in Filmmaker’s International Screenwriting Competition. Danielle Erlich specializes in Sci-fi / Fantasy / Action Adventure screenplays.
