Bio

I have been a writer one way or another most of my life. I have worked as a journalist, translator and freelance editor. In 2002, I received my Ph.D. in Medieval History from Fordham University. I now work in New York at the newly formed Conjuring Arts Research Center as a researcher and translator of works on the history of magic as a peforming art. I love film and everything having to do with the theater and its history. My main goal is to write films and documentaries that will inform people about history. I also hope to write many films with great women characters, because there are so few of those. (Incidentally, my favorite films should be seen as just five films I happen to love, since I can never make up my mind about a top 10 list -- or for that matter, anything else. This is also the main reason it takes me eight years to write a script!) You can read more about me on my blog at: www.pilgrimage.subcreators.com

    I received this as an assignment a few days ago, but since not all the screenplay was there, only the first 45 pages (the rest were blank), I decided it would be useless to try to pass an Eligibility test for it, and am posting my free will comments on what I was able to read. My major question so far: What does the main character (Roy) want? At times he's completely disinterested... read

    This was a really cute story and had some very funny bits (I loved the Woody Allen Mini-Me!). I totally bought the Mattie and Jayne, who were unique characters, and their relationship with each other and their mom. The psycho-psychic scene with the neighbor girl was also very funny. Then it paid off later, which is even better! However, this has a ways to go before it becoes... read
