Who is Tammy Gross?
Tammy is an optioned, award-winning screenwriter. In fact, every completed screenplay Tammy has entered into contests has either won or placed. This may be attributable to good storytelling, but just to get past early rounds, the prose must be thoroughly edited and properly formatted. And a writer must have a strong understanding of the "language of screenplay." This is the secret to Tammy's success!
Before starting her own screenwriting career, Tammy worked as a copy editor of a Chicagoland newspaper in the 1980s, completed novels and short stories, and freelanced as a graphic artist and proofreader.
Until editing became full-time, Tammy's "day job" has been arranging, performing and composing music since the early 1990s. (ChartsForChurches.com)
In 2009, Tammy founded Orlando Screenwriters for local screenwriters (and actors) to participate in live table reads and receive feedback. ProofMySpec.com launched in early 2010 as an affordable proof-editing service for spec screenwriters globally. In 2013, Tammy founded Reel Writers Contest, currently on hiatus while other projects are in development.
The YA novella version of Tammy's award-winning action-adventure screenplay THE TREASURE GALLEONS was released in 2015 on the 300-year anniversary of the actual events it depicts. The book is available with author signature, at Reel Novels' Amazon page.
Tammy's script EVANGELINA, originally written in one weekend at a 48-hour writing retreat, has been optioned! More details forthcoming...
In addition to writing more original scripts in 2018, Tammy is producing & developing an ambitious project to renew interest in & help restore 100-year-old silents, many of which have been lost since their original release. There are many facets to this & major announcements will be made throughout the year. Until then, you can see some of the fruits of this labor at DavidsRite.com, where a 1921 story has been reimagined into a new feature to kick off this historic endeavor.
