Brian-Herskowitz

Tell us about yourself.

I am a screenwriter who has had a long career as a writer, producer, director and teacher.

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?

I grew up in Texas. My father, Mickey Herskowitz is a best-selling author of biographies with over sixty books to his credit. He was the biggest influence on my writing.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?

Is procrastination a habit?

 

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

Two come to mind… “the best idea you have is the one you’re working on right now.” and in comedy “If it doesn’t sound funny make it look funny.”

Do you have any advice for new authors?

Yes, focus on the process and not the result. You cannot control reviews or sales, but you can control what you right. Stick to your vision, your voice and make that the best it can be.

 

What has inspired you and your writing style?

I am a fan of many styles, but particularly of Stephen King.

What are you working on now?

I am currently writing book two of the Laura Drummond Mystery Series

 

What is your favorite method for promoting your work?

I am still figuring that out, but at the moment I am putting a bit of energy into Tiktok

 

What's next for you as a writer?

As someone who is primarily a screenwriter, I am actively working to produce and direct several of my scripts.

How well do you work under pressure?

I could write a screenplay on a deadline in a war zone. I have the ability to zone out all distractions and focus on the page... when I can focus on the page.
