PAGE Awards Quarter Finals

In other-project news, my feature screenplay Shining Path is a quarter-finalist at the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards!

Shining Path is an espionage thriller set in Peru in the early 1990s. It is based on the true story of a rogue CIA agent and a small time detective who brought down the world's most dangerous terrorist organization. I wrote it for producer Brian Zager, who came to me with the story after he saw To Rest in Peace. He thought that I would love the idea, and he was right. It shares a theme that runs through most of my work, and is very dear to me: the story of someone trying to do a little bit of right, in a world of wrong.

I have a bit of a history with the PAGE Awards now. To Rest in Peace won the silver prize in 2009, and News from Kuwait, the feature length version, was a semi-finalist.
