Author Bio: Kevin Stuart Brodie's day job is as a high school history teacher, but he has been writing and publishing most of his adult life. He has published essays in the Santa Cruz Spectacle, Grassroots Economic Organizing (where he once served as contributing editor), and poetry in a number of publications including Sojourners. Kevin has done a number of poetry readings throughout southern New England. He has been twice nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

A few years ago, a story that had tormenting him for months was consistently refusing to be written as a novel, despite Mr. Brodie's best efforts to turn it into one. He finally realized that he actually saw the story as a movie and wrote his first screenplay, "Ashes." That script, workshopped at the Pulse Ensemble Theater in New York City, placed in both the Writer's Digest and Century City Film Festival competitions.

Incurably infected with the screenwriting bug, Kevin has since written four others, and all have been workshopped in New York with Pulse. One of his most recent efforts, "Season of Mists," has won thirteen different contests and festivals and reached the semifinal round of the 2010 Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting. Mr. Brodie recently assisted San Francisco area producer Brant Smith ("Quality of Life") with script development and on set script supervision for his forthcoming project, "In World War." Kevin is a graduate of Screenwriting University's Pro Series as well as Dov Simens' Film School and Robert McKee's Story Seminar.
