Craig Weeden

Author's Bio

I co-write the film adaptation of PAINKILLER JANE with comic book and graphic novel icon/legend Jimmy Palmiotti. JANE was optioned to Solipsist Films in 2014 My diamond-heist thriller, LOST STONES, was a finalist in the 2011 Script Pipeline Screenwriting Competition, and it's a Script PIMP "Recommend." When it comes to screenwriting, I’ve found my poetry background invaluable.
