GeorgiaWeb Site: www.romepoker.netBiography:
By day I am an attorney. My writing history is a monthly column for the largest poker magazine called, BLUFF. From the the beginning they let me loose with my creativity, and I have even written two fiction pieces. My articles for BLUFF are no longer than one page.
I wanted to expand my writing mediums, and a friend of mine had just shot his own short called 'Misdeal'. He got me interested in screenwriting, and I fell in love with it.
I've only written a short so far, called FEAR TO TREAD. I was recently notified it made the Semi-Finals of the PAGE InternationalScreenwriting Contest. Fear to Tread is based on the true history of the British prison ships anchored in New York during the Revolution, combined with present ghost hunters getting in a little over their heads.
I am also involved with a production and distribution company in Atlanta called AfterLight Pictures: http://www.afterlightpictures.com/
I only started on this site last month (June 2008), but I can already see it is going to be one of the best educations possible for screenwriting...and a lot of fun. Kudos to its creators and moderators.
