Author Bio:
I'm a produced screenwriter. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in English. www.lindaboroffauthor.com

I wrote the feature film, Murder in Fashion, about the killing of designer Gianni Versace by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. The film played at theatres and festivals and was reviewed in the NY Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/22/movies/22murder.html?_r=0

I collaborated with John O'Dowd, the acclaimed film historian and author of the definitive Payton biography, "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye: The Barbara Payton Story" on the script "Fast Fade," which reflects O'Dowd's research on Hollywood of that era, detailing events, insights, and relationships.
