About the Author

Dennis J. Packard is a professor at Brigham Young University. He holds a PhD in Philosophy (Stanford) and in Theater and Film (BYU). Packard has produced two films (Firecreek, Hottieboombalottie), and is currently involved with two in pre-production.


"Packard has, miraculously enough, come up with something that is truly new--a practical, pragmatic guide in getting scripts and novels on the page that can be marketed to both communities--literature and film--at the same time, with a sale in one market enhancing and expanding the opportunities in the other." --Prof. Richard Walter UCLA Screenwriting Chairman
