Author Bio:
If life is a three act drama, screenwriting is my fifth act. Born in Charleston South Carolina, I received my undergraduate degree in history from Univ. of South Carolina, magna cum laude. I graduated from two of the nation's best med schools -- a J.D. from Duke and a Ph.D. in Political Science from Johns Hopkins. This was my poetry phase with 100 poems published in magazines, newspapers, and anthologies.

In my next act, I taught at the University of Texas.
