About Me:
I'm the writer of the crime drama "Slingshot," a feature film starring David Arquette, Julianna Margulies, Thora Birch, Balthazar Getty, Joely Fisher, and Lillo Brancato (right before he went to prison for the second degree murder of a police officer). "Slingshot" premiered at TriBeCa Film Festival, has been featured on "Access Hollywood" and "Late Night with David Letterman," and is currently available on DVD from the Weinstein Co. Other work of his has appeared at Hoboken Film Festival, FilmFest New Haven, Upright Citizen Brigade Theater, New Haven's International Festival of Arts and Ideas, and NYCollective's 10x2 play festival.

I'm currently at work on a collection of crime and dark fiction short stories set is New York, as well as a noir novel. I'm an MFA candidate at Stonecoast, University of Southern Maine, and was a recurring co-star on the first season of the hit TV show "Fringe"

Thanks for the invite Matthew. I'm really behind on my mail and my sites. Working hard on a couple of projects. Got a contract today though for my children's fantasy chapter book series, so I'm on a cloud about that! But, back now to my next crime short... Joyce

In the immortal words of the Golden Girls, “Thank you for being a friend.” (What, not hip to a Golden Girls reference?)

Anyways, nice to meet you, Matthew. Congratulations on the film credits and the short stories. I’m sure I’ll be reading more of your stuff soon.

Impressive stuff ... sneaking Joe Eszterhouse and Harlan Ellison in there adds to my respect for you. (The others on the list ain't bad either.)
