Who is Tammy Gross?
Tammy is an optioned, award-winning, indie-produced screenwriter. 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 (often under the pen name TK Blackburn), 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.
Tammy's award-winning paranormal thriller EVANGELINA is currently under option. In 2015 the YA novella version of her award-winning action-adventure screenplay THE TREASURE GALLEONS was released on the 300-year anniversary of the actual events it depicts. The book is available with author signature, at Reel Novels' Amazon page.
