About the Author

Geoffrey D. Calhoun (Heroes from Heaven - S.O.S. - Lily) is a top 100 indie screenwriter and has received multiple awards from international film festivals including the coveted Louis Mitchell Award for Excellence in Writing. Geoffrey is sought out as a script consultant and a re-writer for various stages of development and production in film. He is known for his fast-paced thrillers but has also won awards for comedies and dramas. Geoffrey believes everyone is a writer at heart and has dedicated himself to help others learn the craft.


"There are so many books on screenwriting. Although many of them offer tips on structure and development, few books deliver the information into something digestible for aspiring writers. Most books can leave people feeling more confused than when they started.

The Guide for Every Screenwriter is one of the most efficient instruction manuals on the craft.

Geoffrey D. Calhoun cuts past the verbose film school expository, and gets straight to work, delivering sample-driven outlines and templates that anyone can follow. What's remarkable about this book is how quick it is to apply to your work. It serves as a side-by-side checklist for the writing process.

I recommend this book to anyone looking to write a screenplay, and to any professional needing a refresher."

- Kelly Schwarze, Director - Indie Film Factory

"I read The Guide for Every Screenwriter in one sitting. Geoffrey D. Calhoun's book provides insight any storyteller, not just screenwriter, can use. The guide had me thinking about my script and inspired me to write within the first ten pages.

What makes this book elemental for a writer is the specific simple framing of an extraordinarily complex process. Everyone has bits of their movie in their head... for those of us still learning the craft, it's easy to let a story overwhelm us and lead to failure. Geoffrey's book reaches down and provides accomplishable steps to not only get past the pitfalls but also profoundly improve a great idea into a wonderful one."
