Fast Fade

Biopic of the luminously beautiful 1950s film noir star. Payton's career initially soared with starring roles and romances with the likes of Brando, Bob Hope, and Gregory Peck. But alcoholism and bad judgment took a tragic toll. She ended up wandering the back streets of Hollywood in a toxic daze, turning $5 tricks, and sleeping on benches.

Author Bio: I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in English.

My writing has appeared in Gawker, McSweeney's, Epoch, Hobart, Word Riot, Blunderbuss and many other publications. My first novella was published in print in The Conium Review. My short story in Epoch was optioned by Brad Furman, director of The Lincoln Lawyer. In 2015 it was acquired by Sony for development as a series on The Sundance Channel. I will be a co-producer and a writer on 12 episodes.

I adapted the biography "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye: The Barbara Payton Story" by John O'Dowd, and am now working with producer Don Murphy on the adaptation.
