I am lately working on new screenplays including a biopic (Teenage Bodyguard) about when I was 18 and protecting a frightened murder witness who was a waitress in a strip club owned by the local mob. It was requested by a London production company but I'm writing a new draft that I believe will be far better as I wrote the original in nineteen days. So far nothing has been signed but I feel secure this will eventually make it to the screen.
My second edition re-edited version of "Death of Heaven" is available on Amazon.

The first full chapter, "The Conqueror Worm" is available as standalone ebook or audiobook (http://bit.ly/ConquerorWormOnAudible). I challenge anyone to read that and not honestly feel that they do not want to turn the page to the next chapter.
I now have several audiobooks out on Amazon, Audible.com and iTunes - http://bit.ly/1qXtMSl
My first horror story was published was back in 1992 ("In Memory, Yet Crystal Clear"). I have short stories published in several anthologies including, "The Undead Nation Anthology"; "Rhonny Reaper's Creature Features Anthology"); "Mr. Pakool's Spice" in "Hunger Pangs: Dark Confessions", "Breaking on Cave Island" in "Giant Tales Two and Three Minute Tales" - "World of Pirates", and soon in another "Giant Tales" series anthology "Apocalypse" of ten minute stories with, "In The Shade".
Screenplays: Gray and Lover; The Hearth Tales Incident - and, Horror / comedy; Dark of kNight - a paranormal romance).
I got out of High School, traveled around and worked and then joined the Air Force. I left the military as Sergeant and got a job at Tower Posters, Records and Video before during and just after college and then went into High Tech.
I have a B.A. in Psychology and for many years I was a Sr. Technical Writer. But there isn't much character or story development in that career and certainly no punch at the end, so I've mostly given up non-fiction (except for my blog at Murdockinations.com).
And here we are.

I enjoyed reading this short story a few months ago. In the last few weeks I've seen ads for the movie "Her". The story line seemed so familiar and I couldn't put my finger on why. ...because JZ Murdock had the idea first. It's a thought-provoking read.
