Author Bio:
Wayne E. Johnson's first screenwriting attempt was a script for Tales From the Crypt, which Robert Zemeckis accepted and sent to Jack Rapke at CAA. Unfortunately, the show went on hiatus. About a dozen short stories and magazine articles of his were published nationally, and he currently writes a humor column for The Voice, a northeastern Illinois newspaper. His first novel—The Militarized Zone: What Did You Do in the Army, Grandpa?— was published by The Tradewinds Company and has received positive reviews from Publishers Weekly, Windy City Reviews, the Vietnam Veterans of America and others.
