I moved to New York City after graduating from college in the Midwest in 1991 and thereafter began working in book and magazine publishing. I was a fact-checker and staff writer at PC Magazine (Ziff-Davis Publishing) which was at the time THE monster PC publication -- when I joined the editorial staff the average issue was 350 pages! It's now a paltry 64-70 (if that).
I turned to screenwriting as a serious creative outlet in 1999 when I left the craziness of the Dot-Com(bomb) World in the San Francisco Bay Area. I lived in the City by the Bay from 1996 to 1999 and relocated to Los Angeles in 2000 where I currently reside. Somehow I ended up a product management and marketer as my day job, but would eventually love to leave the corporate grind and write fulltime. If James Patterson can do it, I can! (seriously, I know it's a dream, but we all need our dreams to keep us going....)
Look forward to discussion about writing, the writing life and getting published with fellow Crimespace writers!
