- I'm a NJ-based writer and producer; my 2nd feature, DETOURS, is now available on Amazon Prime in the US and the UK. It's a road-trip comedy about a newly single New Yorker (Tara Westwood) who must re-locate to Florida for a new job; she drives south with her widowed dad (Carlo Fiorletta) and her mom's ashes in a coffee can. The great supporting cast includes Paul Sorvino, Richard Kind, TONY award winner Michael Cerveris, and Phyllis Somerville.
My first feature, Surviving Family, is about a young woman (Sarah Wilson) from a dysfunctional family who returns home with her fiance (Billy Magnussen) to plan a wedding in 5 days. It's available on Amazon Prime and iTunes. Read more at www.survivingfamily.us
