Wrath of God by Lonnie TurnerWrath of God by Lonnie Turner

William Athman steps outside his home on Christmas Day, grabs an axe from the chopping block, strolls back inside and murders his entire family. What could make a man do something like this? That’s what psychiatrist Timothy Vick intends to find out when he’s requested by the murderer himself to take his confession. But when Athman claims he was forced by God to kill his family, Tim must struggle with his own beliefs (or lack thereof) in order to stop the next person to kill in God’s name — himself.

He is currently writing for a secret project based in Maryland and in pre-production for his directorial debut in his hometown of Washington DC.

Synopsis: In a story that could change your perception over what constitutes a “vampire” (though the story actually contains none), 17-year-old David Taylor is thrust into the world of the Fempiror when he disobeys a decree against being out at night to be with his beloved, Beth. Now, he is forced to follow a new set of laws – to protect humanity from the dark side of the Fempiror race. Unfortunately, their laws prohibit him from seeing Beth again – a rule David is not interested in keeping. As David encounters advanced technologies of the Fempiror society, learns of their mission, and understands the very real danger he poses to humanity, he begins to second guess his desire to return to Beth. But when that opportunity arises, he disobeys and changes his life and the lives of everyone he loves.

George WillsonWriter Bio: George Willson has written books, plays, musicals, and screenplays, and he adapted three of the Fempiror Chronicles screenplays into novels. He produced and directed a low budget feature film. He writes music and sings as well as playing piano and almost a dozen other instruments and has two produced albums. He lives in Broken Arrow, Ok with his wife and three princesses.

The first three books in The Fempiror Chronicles series, The Initiation of David, Genesis of the Mutation and The Hunt For The Razers are available from Amazon.com

Brett MartinWriter Bio: Brett Martin took to a life under the lights on the stage at a very young age. His mother starred in a production of Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians” while seven months pregnant with the lad. Technically making it, “Ten and a Half Little Indians.”

An academic background in journalism and creative writing led to years of relentless malaise. These were followed by a tenure as an Operations Manager for an anime distribution company in New York. That was followed by a stint as Education Director of a wolf rescue facility in New Mexico. Brett got to take wolves all over the southwest and say cool things about them in front of large groups. One of the wolves got cast in a John Carpenter film, Brett did not.

A nasty car wreck reminded Brett that he should write some stories before he can’t write them anymore. His short script, Lie Detector, was recently optioned by Burning Phoenix Films. Zombie Playground is his first original feature. He talks to producers about it, and lots of them request the script, though this may be a tactic to silence the enthusiastic writer, only time will tell.

Singles Camp by Breanne Mattson – Featured Script of the Month

Singles Camp by Breanne Mattson

Singles Camp follows the misadventures of Anna Lee Utah, a Kentucky girl who goes to the title place in pursuit of romance. There she encounters wild animals, poachers, illegal loggers and a bizarre cult. It’s a comedy that’s way better than being gagged with a lumberjack sock.

Breanne MattsonWriter Bio: Breanne Mattson hates bios written in the third person. She thinks they are, as Monty Python’s Graham Chapman would say… silly. That’s why, starting with the next paragraph, she has decided to write her bio in the first person, the way Breanne thinks it rightfully should be.

There. Isn’t this more comfortable?

I started out as a musician performing as a singer/songwriter in Nashville clubs. I segued from there into event coordinating, booking acts for clubs and organizing musical entertainment for everything from festivals to charity events. One day an independent producer approached me about helping him find music for a low budget film, a sort of Walter Mitty style B movie with daydream sequences. I took one look at the script and fell in love with screenwriting.

I’ve written numerous scripts, spanning most every genre. I’ve had one script optioned in Hollywood, originally titled Tormentor. Some of my scripts have been produced independently, such as the feature Immersion or the shorts Cobra Blood Cocktail and the animated Sexual Harassment.

I’m currently working on my directorial debut with the short film Selfless. Shooting has wrapped and the film is currently in post production. I hope one day to produce my script Warning Shot, which was a semifinalist in the BlueCat Fellini Screenplay Competition, for my directorial feature debut.

As for my personal life, I currently reside in Oregon with my husband Michael. I work for KWVT and KSLM television in Salem.

To end as I began, in the third person, Breanne Mattson feels honored and privileged to have her script selected as Script of the Month at Simply Scripts and she hopes you enjoy Singles Camp.

Antonio Gangemi and Aimee Parrott

Antonio Gangemi and Aimee ParrottWriter Bio: Husband and wife writing team Aimee Parrott and Antonio Gangemi met on a train platform in Boston in 2003. It was raining cats and dogs, the mood was perfect. They soon discovered that they’d grown up watching the same old movies. Tony had already written one screenplay and Aimee was writing film reviews and working on a novel. It wasn’t long before they decided to move to Southern California to pursue a career in screenwriting. No, they do not miss the snow and cold.

Their neo-noir short, Among Thieves, was produced by Sneakonthelot.com. Their feature-length comedy, Fight Belle, which was discovered on Simply Scripts, is in pre-production with Integral Pictures. In addition, they have three other independent features (The Complex, Used Car Joey and Man & Wife) in development.

Elf-Analysis is a Christmas comedy that begins in the heart of Boston and travels north. Far north. While Tony and Aimee have never been to Santa’s workshop, they’ve often wondered what an elf would make of a Rorschach blot.
