William Martell, First Strike Productions, has written 19 films that were “carelessly slapped onto celluloid: three for HBO, two for Showtime, two for USA Net, and a whole bunch of Cinemax Originals.” The author of The Secrets of Action Screenwriting, numerous DVDs, and the Blue Book series (20 booklets, each focusing on a specific portion of the craft), Martell is a frequent speaker and has been on numerous film festival juries, including Raindance in London.

His website—www.ScriptSecrets.net—offers screenwriters daily tips. Through his blog—SexInASubmarine—Martell shares his adventures as a professional screenwriter in Hollywood.
