With Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror contributor Jack Ketchum

Meet Laurie Lamson, screenwriter, book editor, writing consultant

I watched in awe as my aunt, Sherry Ellis, originated the Now Write! series with two books of fantastic writing exercises: Now Write! and Now Write! Nonfiction.

Because of my screenwriting experience, I suggested her next book be about screenwriting.  She invited me to come on as co-editor of Now Write! Screenwriting and I was honored to help put it together.

Winner eight film festival awards including “Best Writer” at Cinema At the Edge

I first got interested in screenwriting as a film student at NYU.  Then I worked for small production and other creative companies.  I’ve been lucky enough to write several features on assignment for indie producers, including adapting and dramatizing Buzzy Martin’s nonfiction book Don’t Shoot, I’m The Guitar Man for Prodigy Entertainment and a comedy page-one rewrite with Sherwood Oaks‘ Gary Shusett. Several of my own projects are in development with producers.

I look forward to more screenwriting endeavors, whether starting from scratch or working with an existing property.

For almost four years, I was honored to host International Screenwriters Association‘s  free teleconferences Many of the guests were contributors to Now Write! Screenwriting and many of the topics are relevant for writers in other mediums.

When my Aunt Sherry passed away in 2011, I took over editing Now Write! Mysteries.  I then took on the task of putting together Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror on my own.
