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 pleased to help put it together.

GUITAR MAN has won a “Best Writer”, “Best Screenplay” and 8 other film festival awards.

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 musician/activist Buzzy Martin’s life and nonfiction book Don’t Shoot, I’m The Guitar Man for Prodigy Entertainment.

A TV project I adapted from 3 historical fiction books was optioned, developed and is currently being shopped.

For 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.
