If my writing were a song, it would be Thomas Dolby’s “She Blinded Me With Science.” If you’ve never heard of that song, you’re probably much younger than me.
My love for science and music always informs and influences my writing. After completing a Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Texas at Austin in 1996, I worked as an Analytical Chemist in pharmaceutical and agricultural chemical companies. I have played piano since I was eight-years-old and more recently, I have taken up guitar and songwriting.
I like using true crime stories for inspiration and seeing where my own imagination can take me. I’m drawn to writing about the dark side of human nature. What makes criminals tick? What is driving their obsession or anger? On the screen, crime stories deliver big emotional payoffs when the monster is captured or slain. In real life, justice is often delayed or never realized. I’m also interested in strong female characters, family secrets, moral dilemmas, and forensic science. If you are a director or producer looking at my profile, I want you to take my crude painting and turn it into your masterpiece. My script is only the beginning. I’m here to help you achieve your vision on the screen.
