WRITING BEGINS ON THE DAY SATAN CALLED
Very happy to announce my next feature film screenplay assignment will be an adaptation of the book, THE DAY SATAN CALLED: A True Encounter with Demon Possession and Exorcism, written by Bill Scott. The true story took place in 1988. Bill and his wife invited a troubled young woman into the sanctuary of their home in the hopes of helping her deal with the unimaginable satanic rituals and sexual abuses she endured. However, their kindness was quickly turned on them, as their home became infested with evil spirits, demonic activity, strange sightings, and voice of Satan. So happy to be working with Heidi Tan of Third Culture Films, and Rebeka Herron of Rusty Halo Productions on this terrifying true story.

WORK BEGINS ON INHUMAN
After more than a year of story development, today's the day I begin writing INHUMAN, a post-apocalyptic thriller/horror for producer Peter Block at A Bigger Boat (Jigsaw). The fleshing out this world of the future took a lot of time, but we're at a point now where it's time to go to script. Very excited to see where this new story will take me as a screenwriter.

DEVELOPING A NEW GENRE FILM FOR ‘A BIGGER BOAT’
I’m happy to announce Producer Peter Block has commissioned me to write a new feature film based on his original idea. The as-yet-untitled film concerns a band of post-apocalyptic survivors dealing with a potentially game-changing event. While plot details can’t be announced, I’m excited about where this story is going. It’s very much a contained action/horror/thriller with global implications.

REVOLVER: THE FUTURE PRIME, NOVEL IS COMPLETE
What started as a part-time writing experiment in the summer of 2008 has finally come to fruition. I have completed my first fiction novel, a psychological thriller titled, REVOLVER: THE FUTURE PRIME. The story is about two women, one in post-Kennedy assassination 1963 and one in post 9/11 2001, struggling to survive the same serial killer by using a psychological anomaly to communicate across a gulf of time and death. I envision this as the first of a trilogy of novels that follow these women, their ancestors and their descendants on a journey through time and their fight to restore an altered history to the way it was meant to be. The book is currently out to a select group of readers, and the next step involves seeking a publisher.
