Fueled by ridiculous jealousy and shameless admiration of incredibly prolific authors/TV writers Stephen King, Julian Fellowes and Diana Gabaldon [Outlander], and the abject terror of not getting my stories told, I write every day. I recently optioned my ambitious Medieval Spanish Historical Horror TV series 'The Black Castle' project to Citizen Skull Productions. They are pitching it internationally; it will be shot around Spain and Europe, with production quality assured by fabulous Fresco Film who did everything for Game of Thrones in Spain.
I also copyedited a scandalous tell-all fashion memoir book for a big designer - "My Outrageous Crimes of Fashion", wrote "The Knife" a beauty biz farce webseries for QuenCode a tech company- and a sports script "Reach" for a former athlete. My Latin Dance Fantasy script, Club Vida Loca, is revived and timely for a pick-up, as is Madame Presidente, the story of an accidental Latinx heroine taking the reins in the wake of a corrupt presidency.
I love writing books -- ghosting and creative editing for others, and historical fiction for myself-- and scripts--have great interest in period projects--love historical fiction -- European mingled with fantasy-- my faves being GOT, Outlander, The Corwn, The Favourite, 1917, El Ministerio Del Tiempo, also love supernatural content, and relate to esoteric, and some faith-based materials--like the The Two Popes, Name of the Rose [the new Sundance Now series] DaVinci Code, The Way.
A sucker for smart political shows: House of Cards, Madam Secretary, The Good Wife and Homeland are also favorites. I guess you can say I like edgy, stylish, character driven shows with smart dialogue.
