I'm a verse novel and short fiction author, screenwriter (TV, film and the web), actress and poet from Levittown, Pennsylvania. After several years of acting -- and performing in dozens of TV shows, films and commercials -- I returned to my writing roots. I studied screenwriting then embraced my loves of fiction and poetry.
I wrote "Depth of Focus: A Novel" and "Depth of Focus: The Stanzas." Verse novels, both books tell the same story of a young woman's quest for independence, love, career success and the healing of her broken family. But, one version of the book ("The Stanzas") is broken into the poetry/rhythm I heard when I originally wrote it. Currently living in Los Angeles, I'm writing my 2nd and 3rd verse novels -- "Siblings & Other Torture Devices" (comedy) and "Windmills" (drama/suspense). For each, I plan to release both versions.
Parts of my resume are posted on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) at www.imdb.me/kenya. To see it in its entirety -- along with samples of my work -- visit my website, www.kenyadwilliamson.com. I post excerpts, short stories, news, etc. Until I have enough short fiction to complete my anthology, I'll also be posting some efforts on my Scribd and Smashwords profiles.

Thanks for following me, Kenya. I wish you the best of luck in breaking in, or staying in LA.
Like you I converted a screenplay to a novel and published it seven years ago. This August I regain the rights and will publish the rewritten version through Amazon. All my other novels were written strictly as novels. Although screenplays make a great template for writing a novel, since they act as a plot guide of sorts, you must be careful because the sequencing of novels is different than screenplays. The structure doesn't (and shouldn't, in my opinion) follow screenplay's tight-ass rules. What being a screenwriter allows us to do is (especially with already written scripts) build the story through the characters and events without having to map it all out again. You can follow tangents that aren't in your original storyline, bring in new characters and plot twists. Novels are much freer to write than scripts. Only they take longer because of this.
So I guess my suggestion to you is (though you didn't ask for it ;-)) try writing a novel that isn't based on an existing script. I think you will find a glorious freedom there.
Have anything particular you want to write about? I give you free reign over the topic. It could be about your book or something about writing or even anything interesting under the sun that you would like to share with readers. :-)
