I've written four screenplays, one of which, FAULTLINE, was optioned a couple of years ago, but never sold.  It was reviewed favorably by DreamWorks and made a buzz at 20th Century/Fox for about 15 minutes.  The highlight of that ride was when I got to pitch the script with the Vice President of Production there in his office.   Sure was fun, but I'm glad I didn't have to go back to bussing tables when it didn't go anywhere. 

Briefly, FAULTLINE is a JURASSIC PARK meets EARTHQUAKE story where scientists have figured out a way to control earthquakes.  Instead of having a random event every hundred years or so that devastates an area, they intentionally set off a small tremor the first Saturday of every month at noon -- kind of like the global chiropractor. 

My other three completed scripts are called TALL TALE II (a sequel to a Disney film), ON CALL, and THE MAGIC FACTORY.

When I get some more time, I'll tell you all about them...  If you are an agent, literary manager, or producer and would like to request a screenplay, treatment, or coverage, please send me an e-mail.   You can also receive professional reviews of some of my works by directly contacting Natalie Lemberg Rothenberg at InsidersSystem@msn.com.   Her excellent company, Insiders System for Writers, provides coverage for screenplays, novels and other written works and showcases that coverage in a quarterly journal, Writer's Showcase.  If you are an aspiring writer and don't yet have representation through an agent, her company is a great place to start.
