Greetings and salutations!
I'm a gifted transmedia producer in Hollyweird, privileged with incredible talent and the ability to share compelling, powerful stories.
Oh, wait, you want to know about ME, don't you? Not my fantastic casts, crew, or production staff. Well, that's a bit different.
I joined this fair site over a decade past under the nom de plume Aubigne Spratling, eager to freely share what my forensic psychology student's heart was bursting to put forth. I ended up a criminal profiler who went west on a whim, deciding that Tinseltown might make better use of my skills, ability and training.
Over time, I found a home in screenwriting, and my passion in television.
Once a storyteller, always one. Writer is a race, not a job title.
The best fruits of that labour, culled from experiences neither for the faint of heart or the most prudent, became my transgressive novel series SUBPROJECT 10/6. The television drama adapting the third of it, HUNTING ALICE, is in development for a new media network for a late 2017 release. The 2010 demo audio drama (featuring the upcoming television cast) will be see limited release preceding the series premiere.
As SUBPROJECT 10/6 found an impressive following here in its many incarnations, excerpts remain for public viewing by those curious about the project's humble origins.

I enjoy coaching those of all skill-level and genre. More regarding my editing services can be found under my Beta Reader tab.
For me, fiction is about taking chances; respectfully listening to the opposition -- and then overcoming it. Slipstream, transgressive, and controversial SF remain my bailiwick. It's the practise of questioning reality and pushing the boundaries of imagination and veiled social consciousness that inspires me to go to my keyboard, and make more clickity-clack noises.
I leave you with a little anecdote which remains among my favourites, and gave some comfort as a novice writer:
A young film student was once told he was beyond hope and could never make it: his story was a mockery, and he was resigned to failure. Only his friend, a fellow film student of a neighbouring college, stood beside him amidst the sea of rejection and dearth of encouragement within the rough climate that was early '70s film industry. The young man was George Lucas; his friend? Steven Spielberg.
I consider myself one of the 'crazy ones' as it truly is those bold enough to believe they can change the world that actually do.
Which are you?
Creativity is collaboration. If we're not all here to help each other, what are we here for?
Defy the convention. Innovate yourself. Be a little mad. Think differently. Make magic. Polish the spokes, then reinvent the wheel.
See you through the looking-glass on the dark side of the moon.
