Go Into The Story Screenwriters Roundtable

I loved doing this roundtable back in December 2015 with these amazing women: Jessica Bendinger, Lindsay Devlin, Liz W. Garcia, Julia Hart, and Lisa Joy. Check out the serious writing knowledge these fantastic women drop on Scott Myer’s blog. Glad to have been part of this group.

Screenwriting Panel This Friday

I’ll be speaking on a writing panel with the kick-ass writers of STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, STAR TREK BEYOND, and EMPIRE (just to name a few from the pretty cool lineup). If you’re in Los Angeles, want to hear a bunch of writers gab about writing, and are looking for something to do this Friday, April 8th — check it out.

Young And Hungry

YH2015_banner_1200x280I am horrible about posting here. Since I made the Black List in 2013 I’ve been steadily working for the studios, which has been a crazy fun ride, but my blogging has been spotty at best. So in an act of shameless self-promotion, it looks like I made another list this year: The Young And Hungry List: Top 100 Writers On The Verge. Not sure what I’m on the verge of (hope it’s not a cliff), but it’s always nice to be recognized. Happy to be among such a talented group.
