Introduction Screenwriter with two finished scripts—time travel/adventure/ romance set in New Mexico and a romantic dramedy set on the Oregon coastline—and currently having fun writing another dramedy.

Milli is the author of Fear of Writing. She is owner of the Fear of Writing Online Course, where her mission is to put the fun back into writing. She blogs at Milliver's Travels and coaches at Writer's Muse Coaching Service.
