Kid’s Spooky Movie

Being the founder and president of the Idaho Screenwriters Association has opened some amazing doors for me. And one such door was the opportunity to help out on a local independent film, Kid’s Spooky Movie.

Tory is a good friend of mine and I jumped at the chance to do my small part in assisting on the set. And I have to say, this movie rivals Goonies any day! It’s funny, smart and a joy to watch – for the whole family.


Tory and his sons have outdone themselves on this adventure, I know you’ll love it as much as I do!

Idaho Writers & Readers Rendezvous

If you were a member of the Idaho Screenwriter’s Association, I have some wonderful news for you. This year at the Rendezvous, we are honored to present Steve Kirwan, Executive Director of the American Screenwriters Association.  Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to connect with an amazing man.

Steven Kirwan is the Executive Director of the American Screenwriters Association, and a screenwriter himself.

Steven spent his early career selling electronic components, and following his entrepreneurial spirit, started an IT support business, and currently provides IT support for small office/home office clients in the greater Boise, ID region. He also runs a flourishing Internet Marketing consultancy helping clients develop and implement social marketing strategies.

His love for writing began at a young age. A prolifoc writer of traditional styled poetry and fantasy-adventure short stories, he found that writing a novel was “just plain too slow,” and wrote his first full length fiction as a screenplay. “Hard Drive” is currently in production, Additional screenplays include “Outside In,” Short Time,” and “Faster Than You.”

American Screenwriters Association, once the preeminent organization for emerging screenwriters, is flourishing under Steven’s guidance and direction. After its dissolution in 2008, it is back on track to re-emerge as the ultimate Screenwriter’s Association and resource community.
