About the Book

Everyone who has ever wanted to write or work in Hollywood will want to read Hollywoodaholic: Confessions of a Screenwriter by A. Wayne Carter. These are the personal, funny, and sometimes agonizing adventures of a veteran screenwriter who has worked for the major studios as well as with major directors such as Richard Donner and James Cameron. There are abundant writing lessons to be learned here, but "life" lessons, as well. In fact, this story is not just about "getting in" to Hollywood, but "getting over" it, as well. Readers looking past the material or superficial (i.e., celebrity) for something more meaningful in their lives will find this book truly uplifting. Others will grab their latest screenplay and rush to seek their fame and fortune.
