Stories from a seasoned screenwriter. Take heart! Your creative source is infinite and un-ending. Sometimes Hollywood just rips up the roadmap back to it. The bottom line is that Hollywood is not at all as bad as it sounds. Additionally, it's worse than you can imagine. Remember to pack a sense of humor.


I am a screenwriter living in Southern California. I've written screenplays for most of the Hollywood studios over the past 20 years. One of the uncredited writers of FANTASTIC FOUR, I wrote FIRE DOWN BELOW starring Steven Seagal, and the TV Movie 12:01 PM starring Martin Landau and MANEATER with Gary Busey. I have directed short films. I have written on numerous Hollywood studio assignments, some for big shot actors, some for small shot nobodies.

On the Rules of Business Relationships

The rules are simple. Trust no one. Keep business and friends separate. Pretend otherwise and smile and be charming as hell with everyone. Gossip is the currency of a morally bankrupt town. On the other hand, the food's great, the hot and heavy lifestyle is available for those who can pay for it or fake it, and the ethnic, eclectic, spiritual, cinephile, new age lifestyle can't be beat.
