2. Why did you decide to write this screenplay?
I've long admired the series and wanted to try to replicate the show but give it my own spin. Also, as a Canadian who lived in the US for many years, I had some Canada jokes I was eager to use.
3. How long have you been writing screenplays?
I started seven years ago, but didn't focus on my writing until recently. This is actually the first script I ever finished.
4. What is your favorite MOVIE show of all-time?
"Sullivan's Travels" Not only is its indictment of the Hollywood machine still accurate today, it embodies a value I hold true: to entertain is a gift and a privilege. My less pretentious answer is "Heathers", a witty satire about high school that the Hollywood machine would never dare make today.
5. What artist in the film industry would you love to work with?
Just one? Never! Ryan Murphy, Tina Fey and Mark McKinney.
6. Who was your hero growing up?
Again, I can't do just one: John Hughes and Jane Austen.
7. Ideally, where would you like to be in 5 years?
A happy and successful working writer with great credits and fabulous projects getting made and in development. With a pony.
8. Describe your process; do you have a set routine, method for writing?
I subscribe to the highly technical "place butt in chair, do not move" method.
9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?
Chocolate and my dog Gracie, though not together.
10. What influenced you to enter the WILDsound Script Contest?
It's incredibly valuable for a writer to hear her words read aloud. I don't know of any other contest with this unique prize.
11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?
Watching TV and movies isn't a waste of time, it's research!
