Author Bio:
James Day was born in Maine but spent about half his life on the west coast (why, he doesn't know). He triumphantly returned to New England to do what he has always loved most – to write. His first screenplay, Hapless Fu, is a slapstick comedy about an Asian-American man named Fu, a once happy-go-lucky cop in Los Angeles. Due to a terribly embarrassing incident, it causes Fu's life and career go to Hell in a handbasket. The rest of the movie is spent trying to get his life back in order but failing miserably at every turn.
