I write science fiction screenplays; aliens, abductions, galaxies, starships, all that wonderful stuff, but no anal probing.
I spent a bazillion years developing computer systems for the energy business. A decade working on the Grid. Yes that Grid, the one that always fails in apocalyptic sci-fi. It was as exciting as watching Crocozilla vs Godzilla’s Stepson. Not good for the soul.
So some time ago I started my screenwriting education. It was the old cliché, “Damn, I have been wanting to do this, I have been willing to do this.” So I took the leap, retired and dedicated myself to writing great sci-fi. Not the ordinary Mellow Monster from Planet X sci-fi, the good stuff, the 20 year old single malt sci-fi.
Do I have a style? I use fantasy to put ordinary people in extra-ordinary situations. They must evolve to adapt, they must grow to survive. I do not write about heroes, I write about people who have to become heroes.
When an LA detective assigned to the Hopi reservation is abducted, he must make allies of other abducted aliens, lead an uprising or die in deep space.
