“Time Before the Fall” places again.

“Time Before the Fall” is a semi-finalist in the 2022 Miami Screenplay contest. A supernatural mystery drama about a Korean War Vet has placed yet again in a contest. Am getting good feedback. looking forward to seeing this one on the big screen someday. Actors in their 80s would love this script. If you know anyone…



My script “Time Before the Fall” WON the Wiki Scriptwriting contest in March!!! Got some really great notes and doing rewriting. A great part for an actor his his 80s.

The Screenwriters and Actors of Santa Fe meets every Monday from 6 to 8:30 on Vimeo. It is a meet-up group of serious writers and actors started in 2017. The writers benefit from hearing their words read. The actors benefit from a weekly practice of cold reads.
