A few years back, I decided to try my hand at screenwriting. Since then I’ve written half a dozen feature-length screenplays in a variety of genres. The personal genesis of each is unique, and the variety of genres reflects my basic view that irrespective of the format employed, the central task of a writer is to tell a good story.
LOST & FOUND – What would you do to get back the one that got away? A man and a woman, reunited a decade after walking away from an intense summer romance, search for love, redemption, and a dog named Rocky.
MERCY RULE – A comical, end-of-summer softball game pitting the perennial local losers against the town’s ringer-packed powerhouse marks both an end and a beginning for four life-long friends, about to go their separate ways after high school.
KEEPERS OF THE FLAME – A young rebel, banished after refusing to comply with the government’s mandatory eternal life program, is either a wandering outcast searching for like-minded souls, or a government plant whose mission is to destroy the last pockets of resistance to the program.
THE BONUS ARMY – During the Great Depression, a World War I vet and thousands of his fellow vets journey to Washington, D.C., looking for some help from their government, only to have their hopes crushed in a way that shocks the conscience of America.
SWITCHBACK – At the height of the Cold War, a CIA agent fakes his defection to snare a colleague whose treachery is destroying America’s clandestine intelligence network.
THE HOLY LANCE – A CIA desk jockey whose career is hanging by a thread stumbles across a plot to restore Imperial Russia to its former glory through the power of the mythical Holy Lance.
