The Wanderer reviews
Hi, my name is Jane Doe. I moved to Hollywood in '49 so I can be a star. Instead, I became great friends with The Fairy Godmother and I settled for the Citizens of Hollywood street performers. Like many, I romanticized about a Hollywood that I thought existed, but never was. Life wandered into bleak noir. I can't say this is a happy story. But there is hope, darlin'.

Would you still want to open it?

You're gonna die laughing… reviews
Written 2001 for my creative writing class, this was meant as a parody/homage to SCREAM and SCARY MOVIE, which were very big at the time I wrote this script/story. Please excuse the writing/grammar. The teacher gave me 45 out of 50 percent on the story. She enjoyed how I wrote it, but thought the characters were a little under-developed. You decide...
