I've been writing for 20 years. Mostly screenplays for features and shorts. In 2003, I wrote and directed the feature "Save the Forest" which enjoyed mild success in the low-end DVD market and streaming service of Netflix. The next seven years found me writing and directing several short films which ran through the festival circuit and starting a family with my lovely wife. In 2010, I created the mystery web series, "The Puzzle Maker's Son" which gained me entry into the WGAe and in 2011, I followed up with a comedy web series, "Scenes from the Movies". Both are available for viewing online at YouTube. Currently, in addition to writing my first book (Adam Parker and the Radioactive Scout) and raising my three c ... read more

30 years on Death Row, 1 failed execution, 2 non-matching dna profiles, no lawyer... Romell Broom, who has spent three decades on Ohio’s Death Row, tells his own story: a ‘throwaway’ boy from a disadvantaged background, hastily convicted for a crime he has always protested he didn’t do. Having survived a two-hour execution attempt in 2009 he is still asking, ‘Will anybody listen to the truth?'
"The Romell Broom case is yet another example of why the United States should abolish the death penalty immediately. The inherent flaws of the capital punishment system are again exposed in all their horror as we are left to ponder how many other individuals will have to go through this nightmare."
