“My grandfather was a career military man, and I remember my cousins taking me to the marine base to see “The Bird with the Crystal Plumage,” a horror/thriller film directed by Dario Argento. I was four.” It’s no wonder Moore grew up with a love of all things horror - movies, books, true crime. Stephen King was a particular favorite, as was the movie “Jaws.”
After graduating from UCLA with a degree in Political Science, Moore put that degree to no use, instead getting her start in sports television production, first with KCAL-TV and then Fox Sports Net. During a decade-long career as a Producer, Moore won two Los Angeles area Emmy Awards for writing and producing.
Since writing has always been Moore’s biggest passion, she decided to combine that with her love of film and television, giving up the security of a salaried job as a sports Producer and making the leap into writing for televison and film. She is a two-time semi-finalist for the Warner Bros. Writers’ Workshop and second round selection in last year’s Austin Film Festival. Moore is proof that if you follow your heart and your gut (and work really hard), success will follow.
Moore, a rare Los Angeles native, is also an LA cliché - an avid yogi, vegan, animal-loving screenwriter who lives in Silverlake.
BROOKE McKENZIE MULKINS BIO
Mulkins caught the acting bug early, appearing in commercials and local theater productions in her Bethesda, Maryland hometown. She moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of being in front of the cameras but has also found success behind it as well as a Costume Designer. Her most recent project, “Hunting Lands,” has won awards at festivals around the country and is currently available to stream on Amazon, DirectTV and VuDu.
Her overall drive to “tell stories about badass female characters” has led her to her latest, most personal project, “Fire With Fire,” which she co-wrote. A television drama series, it tells the story of her mother’s (the “ultimate badass!”) fight to become one of the first female firefighters in Maryland and one of the youngest at just eighteen years old.
When she’s not spinning stories about firefighters, Mulkins spends far too much time concocting theories about the final season of “Game of Thrones.”
