My life has been so damned strange, the only thing I could do was to become a writer. I surely have enough "fodder" for a million stories.

A bit about myself. I was born in the late fifties, raised in the turbulent sixties, and on my own by 1970 at the tender age of fourteen. I am a Canadian of Irish/Swiss descent, am primarily self-educated and have been writing professionally for more than twenty years. I currently read and do script analysis for the Hidden Talent Agency.

Although I once entered the Nicholl Fellowships competition, I am not much for contests. I spend most of my time doing rewrites-there IS no writing, only rewriting! I used to be a prolific poster on various boards, but have recently become disenchanted with the profound amount of procrastination I see on them. I still see it everywhere I go, but over on Trutopia, not so much.

http://www.trutopia.org

I'm rated on Powerpod and Stedicam, and have almost two decades of professional acting work behind me, in film, TV and commercials. I am almost a cinematographer, with an eye on a future stab at directing. I possess a firm grasp of cinematic principles (a good "film head"), and understand low-level budget and how to write for it.

In the seventies I needed several names to publish under, as I was living illegally in the States (gasp!). My poetry was published under either M.D.Patchen or Dharma Badger, and my prose either as Mikkel Huber, Michael David Huber or under the name Michael Davidson.

As Davidson, I have two long OOP Sci-Fi novels:

"Daughter of Is" Popular Library, 1978 Terraformers play God.

"The Karma Machine" Popular Library, 1977 Cybernetic Buddhism.

I dropped out of sight upon returning to Canada, living with the wild hippies in the bush of Northern Vancouver Island. I did a bit of acting, some FX work, too much camera work and kept my hand in by writing for various games companies. Eventually, I had to give up the writing and concentrate on making an actual living for a change.

Over the last few years, I have been focused exclusively on screenplays. My forte seems to be horror, but a recent stab at Family fare proved extremely popular, and I hope to develop more along those lines. At this time, I have ten "final" screenplays, of differing lengths and genres, with another eight in various stages of completion. I'm looking forward to my first Romantic Comedy, as I am a huge fan of those "snappy" Preston Sturges films.

Several pieces are outlines only, but I have been known to work up a screenplay in six weeks or less!

Plan your work, then, work your plan, as Bill Goldman says!
