As a founder and owner of a nonprofit theater company, I have served as an administrator, director, writer, musical director, actor and singer. With a Master's Degree in Educational Administration, I am able to understand the business side of writing and not just the creative side. I have been published, and I never stop writing, which is very dangerous when I'm sleeping. Follow me on Twitter at PamDubinickJenkinson and see my comedy mixed in with my political views. I have a particular fascination with the horror genre. What is the premise of the script that you want?
