Why Me

A Passion for Writing...

I am an optioned screenwriter who has completed several high concept screenplays with a focus on action thrillers and dramas. I have completed paid writing assignments.

My diverse background and work experience have uniquely situated me to bring my creative skills to bear on any project.  I have a strong understanding of the background of my screenplays – the characters, the theme, and the goal.  I work well with others in both creative and business situations.

I write strong characters, using subtext and utilizing exciting and different ways to present characters, situations and dialogue in unique and interesting ways. I research a concept and its target audience and dig deep into a character’s inner world. I approach a situation in a unique and different way to keep you on the edge of your seat. I elevate existing material and am happy to develop others’ concepts as well as do writing assignments.


While I worked away in the professional world of domestic mutual funds, offshore centers and Health Care, I always saw a story in everything around me.  I love living in the Midwest with my husband and two pugs and a cat who rules the household.

 Besides loving to write, I love to read, travel, and cook.

My Passion:

Why do I write?  There are stories in everything around us. In talking with a neighbor or a stranger – their mannerism, their livelihood – all become interesting aspects of a story.   I like to write screenplays because I want to tell a story that takes a viewer out of their day to day and into a new and exciting world – sometimes scary but always thrilling and profound.
