Author's Bio

I wrote the film adaptation of PAINKILLER JANE with comic book icon/legend Jimmy Palmiotti. JANE is in development with Lotus Entertainment. Another of our adaptations, BACK TO BROOKLYN, is also in development with Lotus. My diamond-heist thriller, DIAMOND PAYBACK (originally titled LOST STONES), was a finalist in the 2011 Script Pipeline Screenwriting Competition, and it's a Script Pipeline "Recommend." When it comes to screenwriting, I’ve found my poetry background invaluable.
