My love affair with language began at seven, scribbling poetry and stories. Devouring fantasy like Mary Tannen's "The Wizard Children of Finn" and Elizabeth George Speare's "The Witch of Blackbird Pond" sparked a hunger for adventure. Stephen King's chilling tales sent shivers down my spine, while H.P. Lovecraft's cosmic horror burrowed into my imagination. Robert Heinlein's futuristic visions and Somerset Maugham's timeless classics solidified my desire to become a weaver of words, an architect of worlds, and an inspiration to readers.

This fascination with language bled into a love for cultures. In high school, I devoured German and Spanish, then landed a life-changing scholarship at 15 for a summer exchange program in Berg, Germany. Two months transformed my worldview. After graduation in 1993, I returned to Germany, this time as an exchange student in the charming Black Forest town of Oberharmersbach. A language camp there ignited a spark, and I ventured north to a former GDR city for a year of high school – a year that revealed a whole new world.

Art's power to influence society resonated deeply. I channeled my experiences and burgeoning creativity into acting at a local theater, even writing and directing plays. But the written word held the strongest pull. From screenplays to young adult novels like "Me and Marney" and "Isabella's Letters," to the adventure-romance "Reunion" and the contemporary romance "Reunion," my stories continue to flow. Currently, I'm weaving a thrilling sci-fi tale, forever enthralled by the power of language to transport and transform.

A Multifaceted Creative

Storytelling wasn't confined to the page for me. As a natural performer, I reveled in captivating audiences with my acting and theatrical productions. This love for visual narratives drew me to filmmaking. I began directing short films, music videos, and documentaries like "L.A., I KINDA LIKE YOU," which celebrates the vibrant creative spirit of Los Angeles artists.

Witnessing the struggles of fellow creatives inspired me to empower them. I now coach writers and offer a free video course to conquer writer's block. My book, "Crush Writer's Block Forever," is a testament to this ongoing mission. This year alone, my meticulous editing skills have helped over 20 writers bring their scripts to life.

From Script to Screen

My repertoire as a writer is as diverse as my interests, encompassing drama, comedy, adventure, and romance. Currently, I'm penning my tenth feature screenplay, adapting my own romance novel, "Reunion." But my artistic influence extends beyond the script. As a seasoned Script Supervisor, my keen eye for detail ensures continuity on sets like "Lifetime Movie Title," "Doctor's Secret Life," and numerous short films. I also produce short films and dream of directing features in the near future.
